Patricia Mayayo. Fina Miralles: double dissent
This conference will analyze the work of Fina Miralles in the sixties and seventies, framing it within the production of women artists from the orbit of the Catalan conceptualism.
Like other artists of the period, Miralles makes a double challenge to the value system of the late Francoism. On the one hand, their works in nature imply a proposal of relationship with the environment that challenges the extractive policies of development capitalism. On the other hand, her performative works and photographic series question the subordinate role attributed to women by Franco’s regime.

Yayo Herrero. Ecofeminist views to reverse the war against life
We are going through a deep structural crisis. At the origin of this crisis is the disengagement of the economy and politics from the materiality of the land and bodies.
We will make an exhibition to understand how this war against life takes place and explore ways and paths to be carried out to reverse it, taking the synergistic proposals of environmentalism and feminism as axes.
