With Gagarin's departure into space in 1961 and the photographs of the Apollo mission, the Earth appears to us for the first time as a whole to our eyes, it falls into our hands by the work of photography and the technique which reproduced it and allowed us to get out of it - to see it from outside. The effects of this appearing as a planet and not as a support are decisive. If in the unconscious of history we have shredded it into countries and maps, in a violent geopolitics, if we have divided humans by nations and races, we are now forced to rethink everything that has been done. On everything we have inherited, now weighs this object that moves from our feet to weigh on all of us, demanding new possibilities to be inhabited. In this 3rd Cycle TMP/ ULP International Cycle, we will allow a free confrontation of these new looks that themes such as geophilosophy, the Anthropocene, the climate crisis, the Gaia theories, globalisation, global art or network activism.
