Post Imperial maps of the world are being drawn up using the alleyways and rat runs ignored by empire’s former hubris. Now, using modern technologies, artists are able to overlay their maps over the standard projection, revealing an ocean of ignorance and bliss.

Tracing Mobility, the first of Radiator’s three international symposia, examines the emergence of a new art space, a space born out of the technology used to control and divide society. Taking place at Nottingham Contemporary on Saturday 15 May to coincide with the Uneven Geographies exhibition.
