Counter\Mapping Queen Mary University


Summer and Fall 2010, 3Cs collaborated with students at Queen Mary University in London to produce Counter\mapping QMary: finding your way through borders and filters. The map + board game tracks border policy, labor conditions on campus, resistance movements, and helps us re-orient ourselves within, against and beyond the filtering mechanisms of the modern British research university. All with rad techno-baroque stylings! This map was inspired by all those who resist the border, our experiences of education and our migrations from various locations on and off it.

*Update* Lateral has also published web versions of the map & game, and on their versions you can actually play the game online! They’re all part of an interview with the Counter\mapping QMU team.
