How can you map a city if it only exists in your mind?

"This city, however, does not tell its past, but contains it like the lines of a hand, written in the coursers of the streets, the gratings of the windows, the banisters of the steps, the antennae of the lightning rods, the poles of the flags, every segment marked in turn with scratches, indentations, scrolls." Italo Calvino, from his novel Invisible Cities


Mapping Invisible Cities presents a photographic kaleidoscope of more than 50 images from South East Asian capitals, taken by 26 photographers in Jakarta, Hanoi, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Manila and Singapore. This exhibition is curated by German photographer Peter Bialobrezski. In early 2008, Bialobrezski held workshops with photographers in the region to encourage a more spontaneous approach to examining their local environments and communities. Mapping Invisible Cities is the result of those workshops. It’s also an arresting and provocative look at our homelands – the everchanging "invisible cities" of South East Asia.

Participating photographers include:
From KL – Alex Moh and Azrul Kevin Abdullah;
From Bangkok – Anuchai Secharunputong, Arnon Hoontrakul, Dow Waksiri, Nopodon Chotasiri and Ralf Tooten;
From Hanoi – Dam Duc Vu, Ngo Xuan Phu and Nguyen Viet Hung;
From Jakarta – Andi Ari Setiadi, Henri Ismail, Julia Sarisetiati, Maulana Marbun, Muradi and Ricky Adrian;
From Manila – Catherine L. Quiogue, Che Katigbak, Cristina Sevilla, Dennis S. Rito, Estan Cabigas, Kidlat De Guia and Maria Virginia Cruz;
From Singapore – Lim Hui Xian Janice, Maxine Chionh Jin Li and Sandhya Gopinath.
