The Iconoclasistas duo, consisting of Pablo Ares (graphic artist, comic strip author), and Julia Risler (communicator, researcher and teacher at the University of Buenos Aires), have been working together since 2006. Their mission is to use cartography and other graphic art forms to turn dominant paradigms on their head and make way for new visions of historic representation, societal growth and participation. Their mapping workshops and collective research projects bring together different communities: neighbours, students, activists, as well as representatives of indigenous groups and the labor rights movement. Their practice spreads through and by a dynamic network of affinity and solidarity, built through sharing and organizing free workshops and projects in Argentina, Latin America more widely, and Europe.

“Iconoclasistas has facilitated a large number of “agit-pop” projects, always with the goal of producing free media for the public to use and disseminate.”

RaspouTeam is a Paris-based collective of urban artists founded in 2005. They have undertaken several projects aiming to spread information about key moments in the radical history of Paris. Events covered have included the Paris Commune of 1871, and the Paris Massacre of 1961 when hundreds of Algerian protesters were killed by the French police. The group engages with the public at large by using and subverting new technologies (QR codes, GPS data, online maps) mixed with ‛old-media’ urban interventions such as posters, stencils and graffiti. Onscreen actions and on-the-street experiences are closely linked in presentations where tools of commercial advertisers are turned into tools for historical enlightenment.

“En 2011, les murs parisiens servent de nouveau de support pour d’immenses sérigraphies retraçant les grands événements de cet épisode révolutionnaire et collées par une bande de trois amis venus du street art, connue sous le nom de Raspouteam.”
