It was an honor to recently attended the Casa GIAP: Creative Ecologies and Decolonial Futurities residency in San Cristóbal de las Casas.
“The call is directed at artists and art researchers from around the world, who are interested in reflecting on the potentials of aesthetics in environmental politics, as well as in familiarizing with ideas of ‘future’, in a decolonial and emancipatory perspective.
The program includes seminars with GIAP (Research Group in Art and Politics), Professor TJ Demos, and local guests. It will involve some field trips (one towards the interior of the forest, at a site of environmental/social interest) and many other activities, such as meetings with Mayan thinkers, artists, and gallerists.”
I am once again reminded of just how much work there is to do.
