  • Arte e ideas sobre Naturaleza/ Art and ideas about Nature

    • Authors: Alejandro Jaime Carbonel
      Pages: 4 - 22
      Abstract: El presente ensayo reflexiona acerca de las distintas perspectivas conceptuales de lo que entendemos por Naturaleza y cómo ellas configuran nuestra realidad y nuestros quehaceres colectivos. Esta reflexión parte desde el ámbito artístico para después incorporar aspectos de la ecología política en la dialéctica Humano/Naturaleza, enfatizándo los puntos comunes y las intersecciones que consideramos interesantes. Tomamos tres ejemplos en la historia del arte reciente en donde identificamos las problemáticas conceptuales en torno a la configuración de la idea de lo natural. Primero desarrollaremos aspectos de la intersección entre arte y ciencia en los proyectos enciclopédicos y el impacto de la cartografía como la imagen que encarna dicha intersección. El segundo ejemplo presenta una mirada renovada hacia lo natural con el paisaje entrópico de Robert Smithson. El tercer ejemplo, la obra de Stelarc, reconfigura “Lo Natural” ante el impacto tecnológico de la civilización. Estas referencias nos sirven para ilustrar y desarrollar el debate de las ideas en la contemporaneidad acerca de la construcción cultural de la Naturaleza a través del arte y cómo este debate toma forma y es difundido por canales políticos que comparten o resisten los programas del poder para la permanente configuración de las representaciones del mundo. This essay reflects on the different conceptual perspectives of what we understand by Nature and how they shape our reality and our collective tasks. This reflection starts from the artistic field and then incorporates aspects of political ecology in the Human / Nature dialectic, emphasizing the common points and the intersections that we consider interesting. We take three examples in the history of recent art where we identify the conceptual problems around the configuration of the idea of ​​the natural. First, we will develop aspects of the intersection between art and science in encyclopedic projects and the impact of cartography as the image that embodies this intersection. The second example presents a renewed look towards the natural with the entropic landscape of Robert Smithson. The third example, the artwork of Stelarc, reconfigures the Natural before the technological impact of human development. These references serve to illustrate and develop the debate of contemporary ideas about the cultural construction of Nature through art and how this debate takes shape and is disseminated through political channels that share or resist the programs of power for the permanent configuration of the representations of the world.

  • Narrativas del cine ambiental en Buenos Aires: ¿discursos expertos o
           enfoques alternativos'/ Narratives of the Environmental Films in
           Buenos Aires: Expert’s Speeches or Alternative Approaches'

    • Authors: Soledad Fernández Bouzo
      Pages: 23 - 45
      Abstract: El presente artículo analiza y compara las principales narrativas que los distintos dispositivos institucionales de cine ambiental ponen en circulación en Buenos Aires a través de sus películas documentales. Las preguntas clave son: ¿qué tipo de narrativas y enfoques del ambientalismo movilizan tales dispositivos', ¿a través de qué argumentos lo hacen', ¿predominan en ellos discursos expertos que confían en la potencialidad de ciertos cambios culturales y/o en las innovaciones científico-tecnológicas dentro de las economías capitalistas globales', ¿o más bien encontramos enfoques alternativos que cuestionan las bases mismas del capitalismo en la actualidad' Con el fin de contestar los interrogantes, llevamos adelante un análisis sociológico en dos niveles: uno de orden institucional, orientado a caracterizar las redes de actores que se conforman alrededor de los dispositivos de cine ambiental, y otro nivel de carácter narrativo, cuyo objetivo es rastrear los distintos enfoques y discursos sobre la cuestión ambiental. This article analyzes and compares the main narratives circulated by different environmental film institutional devices in Buenos Aires through their documentary films. The key questions are: What type of narratives and approaches of environmentalism mobilize such devices' Which arguments are used' Are they dominated by expert’s speeches which rely on the potential of certain cultural changes and/or science and technology innovations within global capitalist economies' Or rather are they alternative approaches questioning the very foundations of capitalism today' In order to answer those questions, we conducted a sociological analysis on two levels: an institutional one, aimed at characterizing the networks of actors that are formed around the environmental film devices, and a narrative one, the purpose of which is to track the main speeches and approaches on the environmental issue.

      Abstract:  Para las mujeres kichwas que habitan las cuencas de los ríos Bobonaza y Curaray en la provincia de Pastaza, Ecuador, moldear cerámica es no solo una actividad femenina por excelencia, sino que esta implica un modo de relacionamiento con los seres humanos y no humanos que habitan su entorno. En la actualidad, esta experiencia de vida se ha visto en riesgo a partir de las licitaciones petroleras que desde el 2012 se adelantan en la Amazonía ecuatoriana. Frente a la amenaza que podrían constituir las concesiones extractivas, varias mujeres kichwas -la mayoría ceramistas- se han levantado políticamente manifestando su descontento y abogando por la preservación de sus territorios. El presente artículo tiene como objetivo exponer cómo las mujeres kichwas de Pastaza, entablan relaciones con el territorio y la naturaleza a través de sus cuerpos y del tejido de la cerámica. Se plantea que el moldeamiento del barro aparece como un dispositivo que, además de evidenciar esta relación, se ha convertido en un medio económico y político a través del cual las mujeres kichwas tejen redes y obran en defensa de la reproducción de la vida tal y como ellas la conciben. For the Kichwa women living at the Bobonaza and Curaray river basins, in the Pastaza Province, Ecuador, molding ceramics is not just an activity women should take care of, but it also implies a way of relating to other human and non-human beings inhabiting in their environment. It also conveys a relationship with the materials and social and symbolic structures that give meaning to their experience. Since 2012 oil extraction tenders in the Ecuadorian Amazon have been posing a threat to their life experience. In this context of threats associated to extractive concessions, a number of Kichwa women –most of them ceramists– have become politically active and put forth their voice of disagreement to advocate the preservation of their territories. This paper seeks to illustrate how Kichwa women from Pastaza establish relationships with nature and territory through their bodies and the activity of “knitting” ceramics. It is argued that the activity of molding clay is both evidence of this relationship, and of economic and political means through which Kichwa women knit social networks and become agents in defending their territories.

  • ¿Por qué se debe considerar al marxismo ecológico en la era del
           capitaloceno'/ Why should ecological Marxism be considered in the era
           of the capitalocene'

    • Authors: Alejandro Escalera-Briceño, Manuel Ángeles-Villa, Alejandro Palafox-Muñoz
      Pages: 69 - 90
      Abstract: Este artículo pretende adentrarse en el debate marxismo/ecología, para subrayar la importancia de renovar las categorías marxistas del materialismo histórico y dialéctico para el análisis profundo de la era del capitaloceno. Se inicia con un bosquejo de las principales corrientes no marxistas que explican la relación del ser humano con la naturaleza a través de enfoques “híbridos”, como la economía ecológica (en sus tres vertientes) y la ecología política. En el ánimo de proponerlo como alternativa robusta a estas conceptualizaciones, se realiza enseguida un apretado recorrido cronológico del marxismo ecológico para examinar algunos de los principales textos constitutivos, desde el propio Marx hasta el actual debate entre Bellamy Foster y Moore. Se consigna que en el capitaloceno, portador de enormes amenazas al planeta, a la especie humana y al propio capitalismo, los debates actuales en el seno del marxismo ecológico ofrecen una provechosa lectura del crisol de contradicciones del capitalismo avanzado. The objective of this paper is to make inroads into de debates within ecological Marxism in order to underscore the importance of looking at the Marxist categories of historical materialism and dialectics in the light of the ongoing era of the Capitalocene. We began with a summary of recent developments in non-Marxist disciplines that deal with the human / nature interface through “hybrid approaches, such as ecological economics and political ecology. With a view of forwarding a proposal for ecological Marxism as a viable and robust alternative, we then mobilize into play several quotations from Marx on the subject, in order to lead us into the current debates between, mainly, Bellamy Foster and Jason Moore. We suggest that in the Capitalocene, purveyor great threats to the planet, humanity and capitalism itself, those debates can offer very worthwhile readings of the contradictions of advanced capitalism.

  • La confianza absoluta en la ciencia, o de cómo la geoingeniería sostiene
           la salvación del planeta/ The absolute trust in science, or how
           geoengineering holds the salvation of the planet

    • Authors: Vera Sanoja Zerpa
      Pages: 91 - 107
      Abstract: La intención de este trabajo es hacer una aproximación conceptual entre la geoingeniería como tecnología y los vacíos que la ciencia deja de responder. Es por esto que nos encargaremos de estudiar las consecuencias socio-ecológicas que devienen de los paneles científicos de decisores en esta materia. Para ello, hablamos de la ciencia y la tecnología como la racionalidad dominante que no se ha pensado a sí misma, luego haremos una crítica a la narrativa hegemónica del Antropoceno y finalmente revisamos informes del Grupo Intergubernamental de Expertos sobre el Cambio Climático (IPCC por sus siglas en inglés) para aproximarnos discursivamente al fenómeno y señalar los visos ideológicos ocultos en el lenguaje científico. This paper offers a conceptual approach framework between geoengineering as technology and the “emptiness” in science as a form of knowledge. This is why we will study the socio-ecological consequences of the role of scientific panelists and decision-makers towards the geoengineering agenda. We would like to talk about science and technology as the dominant rationality that “doesn’t think itself”, then we will make a critique of the hegemonic narrative of the Anthropocene and finally revise some Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports as a way to study the discursive phenomena and point out some ideological interstices in the scientific language.

  • Almacenamiento energético frente al inminente paradigma renovable: el rol
           de las baterías ion-litio y las perspectivas sudamericanas/Energy storage
           towards the imminent renewable paradigm: the role of ion-lithium batteries
           and South American perspectives

    • Authors: Martin Ariel Kazimierski
      Pages: 108 - 132
      Abstract: El actual sistema energético mundial se caracteriza por una alta dependencia de los combustibles fósiles, un paradigma que empieza a encontrar dificultades en tanto se agotan las reservas existentes y aumentan los costos ecológicos. Así, la incorporación de energías renovables, su generación en forma distribuida y el crecimiento del parque automotor eléctrico, se presentan como la triada más prometedora en la conformación de un nuevo paradigma más eficiente y sustentable. Este artículo se centra en la importancia que adquieren los acumuladores energéticos ante este panorama, principalmente por su rol en la estabilización de las redes y posibilitar el autoconsumo y la propulsión eléctrica. Identifica en las baterías de ion-litio un abanico de posibilidades para Sudamérica, que posee las reservas más importantes de litio en el mundo, incorporando la idea del desarrollo dentro del nuevo patrón energético y en un mercado actual y potencial de grandes dimensiones. The current global energy system is characterized by a high dependence on fossil fuels, a paradigm that begins to encounter difficulties as existing reserves are depleted and ecological costs increase. Thus, the incorporation of renewable energies, their generation in a distributed form and the growth of the electric motor park, are presented as the most promising triad in the conformation of a new, more efficient and sustainable paradigm. This article focuses on the importance that energy accumulators acquire in this scenario, mainly due to their role in stabilizing networks and enabling self-consumption and electric propulsion. It identifies lithium-ion batteries with a wide range of possibilities for South America, which has the most important reserves of lithium in the world, incorporating the idea of ​​development within the new energy pattern and in a current and potential market of large dimensions.

  • Movimientos sociales populares frente el Tercer Sector: estudio comparado
           de organizaciones campesinas de Brasil, Argentina y México/Popular social
           movements faced with the third sector: A comparative study about peasant
           organizations of Brazil, Argentina

    • Authors: Lucas Henrique Pinto
      Pages: 133 - 156
      Abstract: El trabajo aborda el tema de la acción colectiva internacional desde el ascenso de las organizaciones del llamado tercer sector, hasta el (re)surgimiento de movimientos campesinos contrahegemónicos, que internacionalizan y ambientalizan su lucha a partir de la agroecología y los debates de la soberanía alimentaria y justicia ambiental. Estos debates serán ejemplificados a partir de tres organizaciones campesinas de Brasil, México y Argentina. Las mismas expresan los procesos de territorialización campesina y sus dinámicas en los tres países, además de un complejo acercamiento a las temáticas ambientales que propone un quiebre normativo en relación a la actuación de Organizaciones No Gubernamentales (ONGs), fundaciones y organizaciones ambientalistas tradicionales. Si bien las organizaciones que buscaremos caracterizar en clave comparativa sean organizaciones novedosas en relación al movimiento campesino clásico, por adentrarse en problemáticas contemporáneas como la cuestión ambiental, democracia interna y la soberanía alimentaria; resignificando y ambientalizando a la cuestión agraria contemporánea; las mismas cuestionan al capitalismo y rescatan críticamente las experiencias de los movimientos sociales y sindical que las precedieron. Luego, las organizaciones campesinas estudiadas afirman en su existencia y base social algunas características que la Escuela de los Nuevos Movimientos Sociales tiende a negar frente su interpretación analítica de la acción colectiva internacional en la globalización y los sujetos sociales (tercer sector) que la misma privilegia en sus análisis. This research approaches the issue of the international collective action, from the rise of the third sector organizations to the resurgence of counter-hegemonic peasant movements that internationalize and “environmentalize” their struggle from the discussions of agroecology, food sovereignty and environmental justice. These discussions will be exemplified by three peasant organizations in Brazil, México and Argentina. The organizations above mentioned express the processes of peasant territorialization and their dynamics in the three countries, in addition to a complex approach to the environmental issues that proposes a normative break related to the actions of the traditional environmental NGO´s, foundations and organizations. The organizations that we characterize in comparative terms are innovatory in relation to the classic peasant movement, because they move further into contemporary issues such as environmental questions, internal democracy and food sovereignty; resignifying and “environmentalizing” the contemporary agrarian question. Also, these organizations confront capitalism and rescue, from a critical perspective, the experiences of the social and trade union movements that preceded them. Then, the peasant organizations studied in this work affirm in their existence and social base some characteristics that the School of New Social Movements tends to deny in its analytical interpretation of the international collective action in globalization and social subjects (third sector) that this School privileges in their analyzes.

      Abstract: En el presente artículo se presentan los resultados de un estudio que buscaba comparar escuelas públicas y privadas del cantón de Curridabat para determinar si niños y niñas tienen acceso equitativo a espacios externos y áreas verdes en las instalaciones de ambos tipos de escuela, así como las repercusiones que tiene sobre estos el tener acceso a áreas verdes en las instituciones educativas. El estudio se llevó a cabo en dos escuelas privadas y dos públicas del cantón de Curridabat, el cual forma parte de la provincia de San José, Costa Rica. Se utilizó una metodología cualitativa basada en observaciones, dibujos de mapas y entrevistas semi-estructuradas con niños entre los siete y doce años, así como entrevistas con docentes. Los resultados comparan las áreas externas y espacios verdes que tienen las dos escuelas privadas con las dos escuelas públicas y se visibiliza la importancia que tiene para los niños y niñas el tener acceso a áreas verdes en sus escuelas.

      Abstract: El turismo basado en naturaleza se reconoce como un incentivo económico indirecto para la conservación biológica. En particular, se espera que las visitas dirigidas a observación de vida silvestre en estado natural aporten al establecimiento de patrones de uso de suelo favorables para la integridad biológica de los paisajes destino. La localidad de Mindo se ha consolidado en décadas recientes como receptora de turismo basado en naturaleza. Este artículo analiza el papel que juega el turismo en decisiones de uso de suelo tendientes al incremento de cobertura forestal nativa en Mindo. Se describe el marco institucional asociado al turismo y se elabora un mapa cognitivo de las decisiones de uso de suelo por participantes en un programa de restauración forestal. La mejora del atractivo turístico mediante restauración forestal es un importante factor de agencia individual en cuanto a uso de suelo en Mindo. Existen desafíos institucionales, sin embargo, que allí limitan el potencial del turismo como fuerza motriz para el incremento en cobertura forestal, y por ende su contribución a la conservación biológica en términos de paisaje. Nature-based tourism is recognized as an indirect economic incentive for biological conservation. In particular, the expectation is that visits aimed at the observation of wildlife in its natural state will encourage the establishment of land-use patterns that are favorable to the biological integrity of destination landscapes. The locality of Mindo has in recent decades become a well-known destination for nature-based tourism. This article analyzes the role played by tourism in land-use decisions aimed at increasing native forest cover in Mindo. The institutional framework associated with tourism is described, and a cognitive map of land-use decisions by participants in a forest restoration program is presented. The improvement of touristic attractiveness through forest restoration is an important influence on individual agency regarding land use in Mindo. There are institutional challenges, however, that limit tourism´s potential as a land-use driver for increased forest cover, and therefore its contribution to biological conservation at a landscape level.
