INLAND- Campo Adentro is a long term project that examines the role of territories, geopolitics, culture and identity in the relationship between the city and the countryside in Spain today. Its objective in its beginning was to launch a cultural strategy in support of rural life over a period of three years (2010-2013), specifically made up of an international conference, artistic production through a residency program, an exhibition and a publication. It is after this first period that INLAND-Campo Adentro is evolving now to be able to provide an open platform to artists, farmers, intellectuals, rural development agents, policymakers, curators and art critics, amongst others from the rural and urban spheres, for presenting their research and practice over a period of three more years (2015-2018).

- After materializing all my research on Urban Utopias and Spanish Modern Architecture in one of the rooms of the amazing exhibition Confessions of the Imperfect. 1848 – 1989 – today in the Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven), I am assisting now Jorinde Seijdel, Nick Aikens and Steven ten Thije in an e-publication that will give another form to all the collective research done by now. More to come soon…

- The Art and Autonomy Reader is the upcoming book edited by Sven Lütticken, meant to be published, in December 2014, by Afterall. The Reader is going to be part of the Autonomy Project, which is a network of art and academic institutions that began in 2010. The Autonomy Project seeks to facilitate a number of events to put the problem and practice of autonomy back on the agenda in a time in which the cultural and the intellectual landscape is being remodeled according to the ruling politico-economical ideology. After finishing my research study A Revolution is not a bed of Roses, Lütticken asked me to collaborate with him, and the other Autonomy Project colleagues, on the configuration of the Chapter 4 of the Reader. In it, I am trying to incorporate some of the results of my research, focusing on the notion of Autonomy and Socially engaged Art in Latin American Art practices and contexts.
