Miki Kratsman and Shabtai Pinchevsky: Anti-Mapping
Miki Kratsman and Shabtai Pinchevsky’s joint project, Anti-Mapping, employs artistic practices to produce alternative ways of mapping.
The project regards seeing as a fundamental human right (much like freedom of speech, the right to fair trial, and freedom of movement). By changing the scale of the image, it enables one to visualize places that have “disappeared” from official maps, both online and in print. The artists use the language of photography, using diverse strategies – direct photography on site, panoramic photography, and aerial photography by drone – to render present such places by documenting local architecture and modes of life contested by the establishment.
