  • Critical Design Methodology and Identitary 'Empowerment'.
           Learning from a Feminist Perspective

    • Authors: Miquel Mallol Esquefa
      Pages: 254 - 271
      Abstract: The rigor in design research and in its own projectual activity does not necessarily lead the requirement of obtaining an empowerment for design theories. Also, vacillations, indefinite debates, the inconsistency of the reflections in the project proposals, the other not just defined, have their intellectual and cultural dignity; perhaps they better represent what we call 'design' as also what we call 'design research'. The present paper exposes, only as basic scenario, part of a research on design theory, especially referring to the private involvement of two women of classical design history: Friedl Dicker-Brandeis and Marianne Liebe Brandt. Its purpose is to establish this basic scenario in which, in subsequently texts, reconstruct the learning that design can obtained from feminist philosophy.

  • Confined and Digging Bodies. Experiences and Iconic Representations about
           the Person.

    • Authors: Jordi Morell Rovira
      Pages: 272 - 296
      Abstract: The article explores the relationship of the person with the hole through both literal and metaphorical situations. On the one hand, it points up the body in seclusion and suspended in a time interval, as in the case of the accident at the mine in San José (Chile) or works by artists like J. Wall, G. Schneider or R. Ondák. In this way, opposed feelings evoke the experiences of waiting and/or punishment, which are explanatory of a confined body or a hole. Literature, cinema and art deal with these events from multiple aspects, which become existential allegories about the individual. On the other hand, the act of digging gains prominence as a symbol of work, but also of the absurd. Recalling the ambivalence that may suggest a person making a hole, this article carries out a drift through works by artists of different generations and contexts, such as C. Burden, M. Heizer, F. Miralles, Geliti, S. Sierra, F. Alÿs, M. Salum, X. Ristol or N. Güell. A series of clearly performative or conceptual works, where the act of digging, drilling, burying or unburying become common practices that show the diversity of meanings and intentions.

  • Foreign Look at the Creative Process. The Place of Migrants from

    • Authors: Laura Gallardo Frías
      Pages: 297 - 322
      Abstract: Every day more people are living in cities and countries that are not of their origin, so that highlights the relevance of foreigner. "Foreign", in addition to the human being, the concept also linked to the distance, the wonder, the strangeness and the new look, “foreign look” opens up a possibility in creative processes. Thus, we propose a revision of the meaning of "foreign" from different fields of knowledge: literature, philosophy, art, among others, to highlight "the foreign look" in the creative process in general, and in particular through a practical example from the architectural project, based on exercises carried out in the workshop, to open the discussion about how architecture can offer a shelter to different confluent cultures in a neighborhood, in the south-west sector of the commune of Independencia of Santiago de Chile, so they can get to make their place.

  • City as Urban Art Stage. Image and Word as Symbolic Space of Contemporary
           Social Claim.

    • Authors: Pedro Ortuño Mengual, Sofía Corrales Rodriguez
      Pages: 323 - 346
      Abstract: This article tries to analyse the work of two authors: Martha Rosler and Rogelio Lopez from the interest that both show in their productions about issues on the citizenship, the collective memory, and the urban space where converge the longings and interests of those that inhabit it. Regarding the methodology employed, it has been based in the qualitatively analysis of the works, of the thought and of the type of language used by both artists.The symbol, the image and the word through the appropriation of advertising resources are inherent characteristics to the work of both. It is a matter of making visible those social problems inserted in the urban space, through the poetics of the language. Therefore, we appreciate that the city, the community and the public space become one of the main keys in the productions of both artists. That is, the search for communication between artist and citizenship based on rhetorical figures (allegories, metaphors, paradoxes, ironies, etc.) where language is protagonist alongside the appropriation of images as a way of making visible the invisibilities within their works inserted in the contemporary urban art.

  • Participación social a través de la creación

    • Authors: David Serra Navarro
      Pages: 347 - 353
      Abstract: Ingràvid, festival de cultura contemporánea del Ampurdán, toma el espacio público de la ciudad de Figueres (Catalunya) como escenario y laboratorio de creación. Su carácter ecléctico y abierto se nutre de diferentes manifestaciones artísticas, dónde producción y difusión, se integran con las personas del territorio no vinculadas directamente con la cultura. Un espacio en el que creadores, pensadores, investigadores, artistas y agentes culturales se mezclan para generar un epicentro cultural y de transformación de la ciudad.
