Dutch artist Jasmijn Visser's Conflict Atlas looks at history through the perspective of the Falklands Islands/Islas Malvinas. Global events are mirrored to local proceedings on the archipelago. 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. Published by Archive Books (Berlin).
