These images are a mixed of some memories, glimpses of what it was the intense experience at the School of Extractivisms in the frame of documenta fifteen in Kassel (Germany) two weeks of meaningful discussions and deep learning. Still so much to discuss and continue building upon, thanks for the inspiration to all the incredible people I have met.
Thanks so much to the organisers and participants at International Summer School Extractivism and its discontents: cultural and artistic counter-movements run by the University of Kassel, in collaboration with Más Arte Más Acción (MAMA), documenta Institut and CELA.
These days I am participating at the International Summer School Extractivism and its discontents: cultural and artistic counter-movements, organized by the University of Kassel, in collaboration with Más Arte Más Acción (MAMA), documenta Institut and CELA, which is taking place in the city of Kassel, Germany from September 7-18, 2022 within the framework of documenta fifteen.
The participants of the summer school were selected through an open call and the selection by an academic committee that resulted in a group of 35 people, 15 of them recipients of a DAAD - German Academic Exchange Service scholarship of whom I am one of the persons granted for this opportunity, I feel honoured, thank you.
"The sessions will feature a diverse group of guest lecturers who have proposed and co-created a variety of themed dialogue spaces that will allow participants to explore the cultural, aesthetic, and political implications of extractive economies through discursive and artistic laboratories, from interdisciplinary perspectives that span the arts, humanities, cultural studies, and social sciences..."

Ha sido todo un honor compartir mesa de debate con María Montesino de quien sigo aprendiendo tanto. Gracias a UNATE universidad por invitarme a ser parte de GenerARTE, unas jornadas sobre arte y ruralidades realizada en Reinosa el pasado fin de semana.
A nuestro cargo iniciamos una reflexión sobre arte, comunidad y 'vaciamiento' sobre lo cual queda mucho por debatir y sobretodo llevar a la práctica.

It has been a real honor to share a panel discussion with María Montesino from whom I keep learning so much. Thanks to UNATE university for inviting me to be part of GenerARTE, a series of workshops and talks about art and ruralities held in Reinosa last weekend.
In our discussion we started a reflection on art, community and depopulation on which there is still a lot to debate about and above all put into practice.

On Saturday, I will participate in the panel discussion titled as "Art against 'depopulation' together with the sociologist María Montesino in which we will talk about our own pracitces and how Art can engage with ruralities and depopulation.
