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.”
