The Last Place They Thought Of
by Treva Ellison, Daniella Rose King, and Katherine McKittrick
A convergence of histories and aesthetic paradigms for disentangling the body from space and place.
The artists in this volume interrogate the geographic implications of particular histories on specific spaces. From the intimate cartographies of a body to the imagined and constructed contours of the Black Atlantic; from the ecology of the North York Moors to the ruins of slave auction blocks, plantation fields, lynching trees and Underground Railroad routes in North America, to a magical realist vision of a river-bound voyage in Guyana.
