9780091636586: Experimental Geography

A photograph of a secret CIA prison. A map designed to help the readers reach Mailbu's notoriously inaccessible ""public"" beaches. Guidebooks to factories, prisons and power plants in New York. An artificial reef fabricated from 500 tons of industrial waste. These are some of more than 100 projects in this groundbreaking collection of visual research and mapmaking from the past decade. The lavishly illustrated book inlcudes work from leading artists such as Francis Alys and Alex Villar with essays by bestselling authors Trevor Paglen and Jeffrey Castor.

Review:

"What could be more delightful--and unsettling--than turning loose a group of contemporary surrealists, disguised as vagabonds and artists, in the ripe fields of the hyper-real? "Experimental Geography "isn't about space; it is about terminal strangeness."
--Mike Davis, author of "City of Quartz "and "Ecology of Fear"
