Miguel Angel González Merchán: Crack Cartographies

Crack Cartographies

This project intends to modify social understandings of “bazulco” or crack, using street vending as a starting point. During a tour, a sound piece is played. Flyers which feature the experiences of homeless crack users, as well as a critical set of instructions, are distributed.
