Bolivian Presidential Election (2020)

7.3 million Bolivians were called to the polls this Sunday, October 18, 2020 to elect their President, Vice-President and renew their Parliament. The official results, revealed almost a week later, confirm the victory of the left-wing candidate Luis Arce with more than 51% of the votes against his main opponents, the centrist Carlos Mesa and the far-right supporter Luis Camacho. An election that was held under a double constraint - political and sanitary - dominated by the Covid-19 epidemic and the memory of last year's election fiasco that led to the cancellation of the ballot and the resignation of former President Evo Morales, accused of "electoral fraud" by the opposition. The...

Anomia (2020)

On going project: 2017-2020 Anomia as a medical term is a brain disorder that hampers remembrance, it is sometimes a symptom of a tumor. The french sociologist Emile Durkheim, in his study on suicide, rescues from ancient Greek the non-name, the unnamed - a / nomos. Anomia arises when rules of conduct established as rules by society to achieve societal goals lose credibility, occur when individuals feel incited to violate norms, is "a condition in which both social effectiveness and cultural morality of norms tend to to zero". In the viscera of the Brazilian inequality in the difficulty of remembering our history, of our origins, it begets the feeling of "what should not be named."

Occupied Palestinian territories (2020)

The so-called "Agreement of the Century", signed unilaterally by Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, will take effect this semester. The "peace plan" for the Middle East marks the year 2020 bringing back the ethnic-territorial conflict that has lasted for 72 years. According to the Israeli government, the plan to “annex” Palestinian West Bank territories has been suspended, however that does not change the fact that the region already has numerous settlements of Israeli military and civilians. Popular resistance in the West Bank, although it is on the streets daily, receives little media attention and now, in an election year for Trump and Netanyahu, Israeli repression...

Brumadinho dam's environmental crime (2019)

4 years after the rupture of a mining dam of Vale do Rio Doce, the largest private company in Latin America, a new environmental disaster caused by the same company kills more than 250 people. In November 2015, Brazil was appalled by the news of the rupture of a mining dam in Mariana, Minas Gerais. This sad episode in our history has killed dozens of people and devastated the environment. Only 100km away, an even deadlier dam collapsed in 2019. Being considered the biggest environmental crime in recent Brazilian history, the rupture of the Brumadinho dam relentlessly hit the village of Córrego do Feijão. The death toll to date is 259 people, 11 are still missing.

60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution (2019)

In 2019, the Cuban revolution celebrated its 60th anniversary. In the midst of an increasingly complex and reactive to communist ideology world, the island is faced with its first non-Castro president since 1959. A caravan filled with many young soldiers and few old revolutionaries left Santiago de Cuba for Havana in celebration of a revolution that has already lost both its commanders and several of its combatants.  The moment of change is established to the extent that after so many years with little political rotation, the new president, Miguel Díaz-Canel tries to popularize the idea of a referendum to modify the constitution against North American political and economic pressure...

Sierra Maestra Building: The materialization of a country's history (2019)

In 1957, Cuba lived under the regime of the dictator Fulgencio Batista. The country was ruled by military personnel, lined with landowners and bankers. In the same year, a bold architectural project was created for the construction of a building of over 200 beachfront apartments on Puntilla beach, in Miramar, Havana. The construction began in 1957 and was not completed until 1960. With the arrival of the revolution, a large part of the residents of the so-called Rio Mar Building fled to the United States, and the state renamed it Sierra Maestra, a mountain range where the greatest battles of the revolution were fought.  At the height of the economy of the Cuban socialist regime in the...
