The development of this edition is being considered as an essay on the possibilities in the generation of production for intellectual and artistic work resources. A case of theoretical and practical study being MAGAZINE IN SITU an independent and artistic device that produces different arrangements in each edition.


How do you evaluate production, movement and (cultural) consumption of services or productions respect to your practices, in terms of auto sustainability?
How are the frame or contexts by where these circulate? What kind of capital (taking the concept in a broad sense) and flows interchange with them?
Are these in correspondence with the values and beliefs of the social and artistic community membership?Do you think your practices activate new problems, areas and production, movement and assessment strategies?
The tight space of the institutions of art does affect the way of transit the issues? How? Do you have any critical stance or project to that effect? What are at link with other projects on the issues?
