An atlas of political, social and economic power structures

An Atlas of Agendas is a political, social and economic atlas, informing the public about sociopolitical power structures and activating opportunities for the self and the commons.

The French research and design group Bureau d tudes has been producing maps of contemporary political, social and economic systems that allow people to inform, reposition and empower themselves. Revealing what normally remains invisible, often in the shape of large banners, and contextualizing apparently separate elements within new frameworks, these visualizations of political and business interests and relations rearticulate the dominant symbolic order and actualize existing structures that otherwise remain concealed and unknown.

This hardcover volume, panoramic in scope and theoretically both profound and accessible, is the atlas for an emancipatory new citizenship that utilizes the opportunities of infographics from the local to the global and back again.
