Based in Pakistan Active since 2015 Exhausted Geographies is an experimental art publication mapping the city of Karachi, edited by Zahra Malkani and Shahana Rajani and designed by Abeera Kamran. Exhausted Geographies is a radical engagement with the politics of representation and mapmaking in order to explore and produce new ways of seeing and imagining cities in the global South. This publication is a collection of seven maps, each coupled with an essay, contributed by artists, architects, historians, urban planners, geographers and anthropologists working on/in Karachi. It is a coming-together of different situated and localized knowledges to enable an exchange of ideas and methodologies beyond the borders of the academy and the art world. Using artistic and interdisciplinary research methods, the contributors subvert mapmaking into an open and critical medium to produce visual representations of space, temporality, politics and human relationships.
