Conflict Atlas — Geopolitics & Contingencies on the Malivinas/Falklands Archipelago

Description

Conflict Atlas looks at history through the perspective of the Falklands Islands/Islas Malvinas. It places the archipelago in the centre of the world and mirrors global events to local proceedings. Through this method it explores trade routes, colonial enterprises, patterns of migration, questions of identity, strategies in warfare and the role of the climate in social issues. Conflict Atlas comprises texts, maps and archival materials. Starting from the case of the Falklands/Malvinas it aims to create a field of tensions by the multiplication and stratification of geographical sites, historical times and subjective views. Within the tension field the atlas detects movements and events that are contingent in character and can reflect on human behaviour within conflicts.
