Lize Mogel is an interdisciplinary artist and radical cartographer who works in the interstices between art and cultural geography. She creates and disseminates counter-cartography–maps and mapping practices that produce new understandings of social and political issues. Her work connects the real history and collective imaginary about specific places to larger narratives of globalization. During RAW, Mogel will contribute her piece, Mappa Mundi for exhibition as a mural in the Gray Campus Center. This work, which will be on display indefinitely, as Mogel explains, is based on "the intricacies of globalization... an attempt to remake the world map, relying on 'associative' geographies rather than physical ones."
