Guest lecture by Amor Muñoz organized by Marina Grzinic, Post-Conceptual Study Program.
This talk is about how art, by strategically using technology as a form of reflection and criticism, can become a fundamental social impact agent. I will talk about two interdisciplinary art projects: »Maquila Region 4« a mobile factory for the manufacture of electronic-textile artworks at marginalized areas of Mexico city; and »Yuca Tech: Energy by hand,« a local technology lab located in the Mayan region (Yucatan), to creating photovoltaic textiles.
