One person’s way of addressing recent attacks in Paris ‘through a less direct and more structural approach’

I found this blog post, # MAPS /// ANOTHER PARIS: THE BANLIEUE IMAGINARY, by Léopold Lambert interesting. I’ll have remember to take a closer look at the maps.

‘Constructing a new imaginary does not change much the reality it describes, and the exclusionary structures remain inexorably operative in their violent physicality. Nevertheless, these logic are so anchored within the way we perceive (and therefore perpetuate) the city of Paris and its excluded populations, denigrated by the almost entirety of the political elite, that it seems that the first step to undertake is to act on all elements that would claim to legitimate them.’
