This week’s readings put forward some concerns about memory and power inequalities. Maps (and official histories that accompany maps) are selective – they make visible some things, some people and not others. ATSA (Action terroriste socialement acceptable, a Montreal-based group) is adressing those invisibilities through multiple projects (Frag on the Main, State of emergency, etc) – they occupy particular sites, provide « tourists » with maps and podcasts, etc. This group, by dealing explicitly with social inequalities, ecological issues and « hidden » memories, emphasizes the normative frame in which individuals « perform » their readings of the maps.
