Cartographies of Inclusion

Graduate Show

10 Nov 2017 to 15 Nov 2017

“Cities emerge as dense concentrations of people brought together through production, trade, immigration, and all the other interactions that bridge difference” (Madanipour, 1998). Different city spaces serve alternate needs, providing the means for large groups of people to share localities and overlap with the past; at the core of their structure cities seek to enable inclusion.

Cities are rewritten as the identities that inhabit them shift. Labels are assigned to constructed identities and divide up populations by age, gender, race, and religion. How are inclusions mapped onto the urban landscape, constructing our perspective of cities as microcosms for difference? Photography enables us to visually map an increasingly urban world, making and representing connections between communities and geographies in a process that includes the viewer; we feel we know the world through viewing photographs.

Inclusions can occur within separations to create spaces of belonging for minority groups. A condition of modernity is exclusions that have reverberations around the world; a consequence of displacement is inclusion elsewhere. Cartographies of Inclusion explores the interconnectedness of human belonging and urban space, making enquiries into the relationships and structures that unite and include groups of people in cities.
