AEMP Handbook by The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project (AEMP)

  • Anti-Eviction Mapping Project
Chapter

Abstract

The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project is a multimedia storytelling collective documenting the dispossession and resistance of San Francisco Bay Area residents facing gentrifying landscapes. Through an ever-expanding collection of mediums, such as maps, murals, zines, oral histories, and community events, the collective makes the often invisible mechanisms of material, cultural, and affective displacement visible. This chapter provides a snapshot of the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project’s work by presenting its Handbook as a found object. In action, the Handbook is a dynamic document that educates project members about past efforts while providing a field guide for future activism. Captured in this chapter, the Handbook becomes a static testament to the ongoing work of the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project as of February 2016.
