The Mapping Journey Project

img_4433The Mapping Journey Project // Bouchra Khalili

Eight projector screens are scattered throughout the space at MoMA. Each screen shows hands drawing lines on maps. The screens are The Mapping Journey Project by Bouchra Khalili. The eight screens show the journeys by eight individuals who were forced to leave their home for various reasons, be that political or economical. Watchers are able to hear the individual’s voice and see their hands trace their journey with pen on a map, however they are denied seeing the travelers.
