Exhibiting artists Otobong Nkanga, Milena Bonilla, Bouchra Khalili and Oraib Toukan discuss recent work and themes in the exhibition. The event will be chaired by Dr Simon Harvey, Art Academy, University of Trondheim, whose key research areas include smuggling and visual culture, mapping, and travel and tourism.
The exhibition Whose Map is it? presents nine contemporary international artists, questioning the underlying structures and hierarchies that inform traditional mapmaking. They provide individual insights that inscribe new, often omitted perspectives onto the map. From 2 June until 24 July 2010.
