LOVERS OF THE EXTREME
Abstract: In response to the violence generated by extraction on the planet, contemporary art also has a mission: to protect and repair the soil. The people most affected by the extraction of minerals necessary for the development of “Prometheus” technology need to expand the voice of their soils. The oxygen and water necessary for our survival are diverted causing scarcity and contamination. Simultaneously, rurality is urbanized, mineralized and industrialized, and the matter continues to be, since Descartes, despised and demoted to the status of object. Thus the world economy continues to develop.
Keywords: Soil. Protection. Extractivism. Resistance. Atacama Salar.
