Publication Type: Chapter in a book

Description: This Too is a Map, is an anthology that accompanies the 12th Seoul Mediacity Biennale’s exhibition and events as a stand-alone, research-focused volume. Engaging with issues at the core of the Biennale’s mission, this publication brings together text-based and visual contributions by artists, researchers, and writers from around the world. In so doing, the anthology contends with such topics as migrant and diasporic narratives and their entanglements with global industrial networks; poetic, philosophical, and feminist readings of inhabitation in the context of territorial borders and fluid identities; decolonial implications of translation and colonial languages of geology and geography; revisionary mappings of infrastructures and cybernetics; and the circularity of extractivism and e-waste disposal. It proposes narratives and images that serve as navigational tools for a future world beyond nation-state borders
