Georg Lutz - Intrusion
Almost imperceptibly, our maps are systematically subordinated to fixations, perspectives hermetically sealed to fend off intrusion, presumably in order to preserve themselves unchanged. ‘Intrusion’ tracks traces of migration in cartography. As part of his research for a project in Calais, Georg Lutz shows how various traces of migration gradually vanished from Google Maps. The same locations are presented in duplicate: in one we see people walking or resting; in the other, recorded later, they are absent. The clues Lutz draws together tell a story of landscape and placemaking, of hope and despair, and of uneven power relations interwoven with European and global politics.
