Land mass translocation

Brecht’s Land Mass Translocation projects, eveloped after he had moved to England in 1968 and become, one can easily guess, so depressed about the weather as to conceive ‘the idea of moving England closer to the Equator.’ Brecht’s maps chart other imaginary translocations such as the 1969 Wedding of Miami and Havana.
