The exhibit will examine methodologies of map-making through examining several types of maps: those created, exchanged, distributed and annotated by migrants on paper and through their cell phones; and those produced by governmental and interstate agencies for the control, tracking and management of migrants. The exhibition will run from March 25 through June 4, 2017.
