EXIT is an immersive installation visualizing political, economic, and environmental migrations, as well as worldwide deforestation and the loss of languages. Prompted by an idea from French philosopher and urbanist Paul Virilio, it was created by American artists and architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, architect-artist Laura Kurgan, statistician-artist Mark Hansen, and artist-designer Ben Rubin, in collaboration with scientists from diverse disciplines, including Bruce Albert, François Gemenne, and François-Michel Le Tourneau.

Composed of a series of animated maps generated by data collected from over one hundred global sources, EXIT was commissioned in 2008 by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain for the exhibition Native Land, Stop Eject. It was updated in 2015 for COP21 in Paris.

Through many illustrations and texts by Paul Virilio, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Laura Kurgan, Mark Hansen, and François Gemenne, this book retraces the creation of EXIT and explores the questions that are at the core of this timely and compelling artwork.
