'Shifting Map is a presentation of artists' platforms from Africa, Asia and Latin America, all part of the RAIN Artists' Initiatives Network.
What significance can an artist have in the socio-political context in which he or she works? What is the position of artists' platforms in relation to established structures? How can intercultural exchange acquire depth? These and other questions are the focus of this book, in its lively exchange of experiences and ideas as well as its visual contributions. In this, Shifting Map joins the broad international discussions on social engagement in the arts, intercultural exchange, cultural identity and the dominant visual culture. With contributions by philosopher Reinaldo Laddaga and curator Charles Esche.' (Backcover)
