“Polítiques del sòl” investigates, from the artistic imagination, different ways of inhabiting the place by different life forms. To inhabit, to occupy, to inhabit or to reside, always implies a relationship of the bodies with their exteriority, whether human or non-human, it profoundly transforms the ways of being of both one and the other. Starting from this double ethical-political inflection that entails every act of living, the project explores the complex interrelationships of subjectivities in their environments, as an occasion to think about the biopolitical, geopolitical, necropolitic dynamics that determine the existence in all its manifestations in the planet, and at the same time, to explore the conditions of possibility of inhabiting the opposite. Through different ethico-aesthetic practices, embodied and situated, that understand criticism not as denial but as affirmation, the sample asks how art can contribute to imagine a reinvention of life, value systems and forms of coexistence , in order to face the multifaceted challenges we face in the first decades of the 21st century.
