"ARTISTIC PEDAGOGICAL APPROACHES
FOR THE CULTIVATION OF ECOLOGICAL CULTURES"
FIRST PUBLISHED IN 2016 / 2ND EDITION PUBLISHED IN 2017
How has the relationship between human beings and natural ecosystems been transformed over the centuries? What are the implications of these processes and how do they influence our current language, perception, and interactions? The book T(t)ERRA* is an invitation to go deeper into these questions through texts, images, and practical proposals that promote an transpersonal worldview between humans, non human, social and natural ecosystems. It was created as part of the research paper for the undergraduate program in Visual Arts, oriented by Felipe Chaimovich, Professor, Philosopher, and Curator. Today, it already has its second independent edition published.
