main interests:
the fields of art and urbanism; artistic and spatial practices that focus on horizontal and emotional forms of exchanging knowledge and know-how; unlearning hegemonic/western thoughts, behaviors and representations; creative collaborations and active exercises of citizenship; mixing art and life, work and pleasure - towards a new economy of creativity and time.

Classes explore participatory and collaborative exercises, bodily experiences that enhance sensuous perceptions, as well as critical reflections on the role that each one of us play in the everyday construction of our cities and societies.
