In the 1960s, the landscapes and cities of protectorates and former colonies from india to the Maghreb, from the Soviet Republics to the new states in the Southern hemisphere were replete with the spirit and forms of modernity; forms that transmogrify and then dissolve into the thin air of the vernacular. The star-maps that are used to survey these artificial worlds often serve to navigate the boundaries between private and public domains.
