Lize Mogel on Counter-Cartography

Lize Mogel discusses counter-cartography, an approach that involves looking beyond a map’s surface to reveal the politics of place. As the Whitney Education Department’s Community Artist-in-Residence (January–May 2015), Mogel introduced her practice of counter-mapping to teens, students, and seniors as a way to uncover personal histories and see what they say about the past, present, and future of the Whitney’s downtown neighborhood.
