Publisher: Set Margins, ISBN: 9789083350196, Author: Patricio Davila, Format: Paperback,  130 x 200 mm, 308pp

This volume collects contemporary artworks and projects that use data, diagrams, maps and visualisations as ways of challenging dominant narratives and supporting the resilience of marginalised communities.

The artists and designers featured critique conventionalised and established truths that obscure important histories or perpetuate oppressive regimes; they also contribute to positive social change by engaging communities and providing alternative strategies for storytelling, communication and organising. Historical and contemporary uses of data and visualisation in colonisation, surveillance and management are problematised through critical interventions that use performance, embodiment and counter-narratives. The publication is the product of an exhibition organised by Onsite Gallery at OCAD University, Toronto, in 2018.
