Lize Mogel is an interdisciplinary artist, who, for the past decade, has worked with the interstices between art and cultural geography. She has created and disseminated counter-cartography maps and mappings 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 global economies. She has mapped public parks in Los Angeles, future territorial disputes in the Arctic, and wastewater economies in New York City. Mogel is co-editor of the book/map collection “An Atlas of Radical Cartography” and co-curator of its related traveling exhibition.

Exhibitions include the Sharjah (U.A.E.), Gwangju (South Korea), and Pittsburgh Biennials, Greater New York at MoMA PS1, and Experimental Geography (touring). Photo credit: Kim Llerena.
