‘An Atlas of Radical Cartography’ brings together a number of mapping strategies that traverse areas of practice such as art, design, activism, cartography and geography, focusing on the map’s function as a political agent. Conceived and organized by New York-based artists Lize Mogel and Alexis Bhagat, ‘An Atlas of Radical Cartography’ began as a publication of ten maps and ten essays and evolved into a traveling exhibition. At Casco, the exhibition includes works of radical cartography by fifteen international artists, architects, activists and collectives. They take on a range of pressing social and political issues from globalization and economic inequity to diverse urban concerns, in the process creating new imaginary territories and anticipating possible actions.
Contributions by An Architektur with a42.org, Bureau d’Etudes, the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP), Jacqueline Goss, hackitectura.net & Indymedia Estrecho, Ashley Hunt, Institute for Applied Autonomy with Site-R, Labor k3000 in collaboration with TRANSIT MIGRATION, Pedro Lasch, Lize Mogel, Trevor Paglen & John Emerson, Philippe Rekacewicz, Brooke Singer, Jane Tsong, Unnayan
The structure of exhibition and workspace is designed by Andreas Müller, member of An Architektur, as part of his ongoing research into participatory architecture.

Weekly hands-on mapping workshops, a working group, events & a publication
In response to the global economic crisis, Lize Mogel and Casco initiate the collective and participatory mapping/research project ‘Our Economies.’ The public is invited to contribute their own visualizations of the global economic crisis to a map archive, which will be further interpreted by a working group of researchers and designers.
