The video piece MapL consists of fragmentary filming of the Lublin city map exhibited at the State Museum of Majdanek, the former Nazi concentration camp. The map comprises black lines which stand for streets and rivers, and red rectangles which symbolize commemorative sites. The film's abstract aesthetics calls to mind constructivist compositions as well as modernist forms in general.
