Artivist mapping, also called critical or counter-mapping, are multiplying more and more to produce alternative visual narratives of borders and migrations. The creators of artivist mappings “use [...] a ‘new cartography,’ a practice that creates new (political geographic) possibilities and other (political geographic) realities, rather than representing already existing geographies” (Dalton and Mason-Deese, 2012). We present here an artivist mapping project, co-created in 2013 by visual artists, researchers in social sciences, and exiled people residing in Grenoble, France. In Crossing Maps, asylum seekers and refugees were invited to participate in a series of experimental, interactive mapping workshops that question the notion of borders, hospitality, the statuses of "researchers/artists/migrants", in relation with an ethics of equality.
