Ramón Grosfoguel
more

In this podcast, Puerto Rican sociologist and activist Ramón Grosfoguel guides us through centuries of obscurantism in Europe: from Christopher Columbus’s meeting with Queen Isabella in Granada on 11 January 1492 to the debate between Bartolomé de las Casas and Juan Ginés de Sepulveda that laid the groundwork for the biological and culturalist racism that persists to this day. In doing so, he dismantles the Doctrine of Discovery and the universalist and ahistorical assumptions of Eurocentrism and modernity that still abound in academia.

Open-weather
more

In this two-voice podcast, researcher-designer Sophie Dyer and creative geographer Sasha Engelmann weave speculative storytelling through glitchy weather satellite transmissions in a dialogue tinged with the feminist meta-practices that run deep beneath their collective operations. Together, they talk about NOAA satellites, about building alliances and about weather literacy, occasionally interviewing each other as friends and guiding us through the generous network of feminist thinkers that informs their practice.

Yaiza Hernández Velázquez
more
In this podcast, we sit down with transdisciplinary researcher and curator Yaiza Hernández to get to the heart of her deep-dive research into what she has coined Terminal Tourism. Drawing upon the long tradition of academic scholarship, but also from a situated perspective as a native from the Canary Islands, Yaiza unpacks the constellation of problems orbiting the travel industry, from environmental degradation to rampant gentrification and the subsequent disruption of local infrastructures, and a whole host of other socioeconomic inequalities.

Ona Bros
more

En aquest podcast, la imatge es converteix en un dispositiu des del qual es nuen relacions complexes, amb agència i multitud d'agents que les componen, que els donen i treuen sentit. L'artista visual i investigadora Ona Bros traça un recorregut gairebé cronològic de la seva trajectòria vital i, des del balboteig, la impropietat i la pregunta, sosté imaginaris i altres maneres d'estar i posar-se en relació. Acció directa, imatges que taquen, porno ètic, cossos gestants i comunitats de gel fan lloc a la sensació permanent de no pertànyer i la necessitat de sostenir de la vida.
