For our next installment of our Rad Collabs blog series, we’d like to highlight Liz Kueneke. This Chicago native and current Spain resident has traveled the world, collaborating with everyday Joes and Josephines on participatory embroidery projects. She has stitched maps of neighborhoods in Brooklyn, NY to Los Angeles, CA; Bangalore, India; Rome, Italy and Barcelona, Spain just to name a few.
Her embroidered maps not only lay out the geography of said neighborhoods, but they also map out social history based on the experiences of the inhabitants. This adds a real human element that is lost in municipal maps. Through these collaborative projects, she helps communities come to a new understanding of the places in which they live.
