Extractive Zones + Decolonial Praxis


Extractive Zones + Decolonial Praxis



Based on her book, The Extractive Zone, Macarena Gómez-Barris, Pratt Institute, explores the old and new sites of land and water defense, and artistic and activist responses to these issues. Gómez-Barris will discuss work from the Américas to argue for alternative modes of living, being, and doing from within and outside of the extractive zones.
