This year, the Istanbul Design Biennial has chosen the theme The Future is Not What it Used To Be. When they opened the call for participation back in January, they asked for manifestos of any form â€“ words, videos, artworks, anything that spoke to this theme. So the Mapmaker Manifesto was born. This manifesto demands that we look at the data around us in an honest and critical way. With this information, we may choose a direction towards our future and find a healthy, sustainable way to get there.
Without further ado, Stamen is pleased to announce the artists and works weâ€™ve selected for the Mapmaker Manifesto curation.
