‘Copper Geographies’ that stems from Ignacio Acosta’s practice-based PhD has been published by published by Editorial RM (México/Barcelona). ‘Copper Geographies’ has six written contributions by poets and historians, Andrés Anwandter, Marta Dahó, Tehmina Goskar, Tony Lopez, Louise Purbrick and Frank Vicencio López. The book invites the viewer to a journey of copper from raw material through stock market exchange value, material object and wealth. From the transformed landscapes of the Atacama Desert through a metaphoric journey to Wales, the project documents spaces of trafficking, protest and production as well as copper as ore, smelted commodity and recycled material. The book makes visible the return of the material hidden with technology devices to the geographies where it originated from. Launched during Paris Photo in November 2018.
