Esto es inconcebible... Una realidad absurda a los ojos de todos y con la complicidad de todos los gobiernos. Es muy triste ese informe y pensar en la pobreza de las mujeres de los países tercermundistas, que la mayoría de las veces son madres solteras y que ellas solas deben hacerse cargo de sus hijos... Qué futuro nos espera?

Here is a great session on institutional critique. It is focused on art, but this stuff can be very well used for non art institutions as well. Its really important stuff for a imaginative process of redirecting communication/design and art.

Brandalism: 600 ad takeovers in Paris before the COP21 Climate Conference

"A few years ago, I was being shown around a large, very technologically advanced university in Asia by its proud president. As befitted so eminent a personage, he was flanked by two burly young minders in black suits and shades, who for all I knew were carrying Kalashnikovs under their jackets. Having waxed lyrical about his gleaming new business school and state-of-the-art institute for management studies, the president paused to permit me a few words of fulsome praise. I remarked instead that there seemed to be no critical studies of any kind on his campus. He looked at me bemusedly, as though I had asked him how many Ph.D.’s in pole dancing they awarded each year, and replied rather stiffly "Your comment will be noted." He then took a small piece of cutting-edge technology out of his pocket, flicked it open and spoke a few curt words of Korean into it, probably "Kill him.""
