Part of this years Memefest PLEASURE outlines is devoted to the Pleasure of Hospitality (and being human). Here a wonderful short film about conversations between refugees and tourists on the Greek Island Lesbos:

Memefest 2016 Festival theme: PLEASURE


The pleasure of drugs:

At the time, I was writing a book about the politics of drug prohibition. I started to ask Ehrlichman a series of earnest, wonky questions that he impatiently waved away. “You want to know what this was really all about?” he asked with the bluntness of a man who, after public disgrace and a stretch in federal prison, had little left to protect. “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

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?

Right wing party is gouverning again in Argentina and I've been thinking a lot these days about Memefest 2012. Debt is again in the center of the scene, after 12 years. Luckily we have more tools to understand what's going on and to fight against neoliberalism.

I am sorry to hear about your Country Ivan, I have been following the election. I would be interested to work more on campaigns with you and Mariano. Especially using food as a medium- I think it has really a lot of potential. We should do something together again. Hugs, Oliver

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.

I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in

Memefest me mostró que a través del diseño, yo también podría participar de una discusión real y necesaria acerca de lo que esta pasando con la comunicación visual en el mundo que habitamos.
No todo puede ser vendido, ni comprado. Para eso ya esta la publicidad.


Education

Diseñadora visual


Music I like

Amo la música, sin ella no puedo vivir.
Todo el buen Trip-hop.
Los clásicos del rock.
Y conmovedoras voces femeninas.


Books I like

Más que títulos, autores: Ernesto Sábato, Jorge Luis Borges, Samuel Beckett, Anton Chejov, José Saramago, Marguerite Yourcenar, Saul Bellow, Paul Auster y otros más... Leer me salva.
