CONTESTED_TERRITORY is a network of more than 20 European and Latin American partners who, through an intensive exchange programme, develop new insights into controversial human-environment relations in terms of content and concept, but also make them visible to a broader audience in cultural performances and thus contribute to strengthening locally anchored cultural systems of meaning.
In doing so, an alternative understanding will be developed from a comparative perspective of how people in Europe and Latin America think, shape, negotiate and manage together space and spatiality (i.e., "Territories) in unequal power relations. The project builds on an understanding that alternative, often locally anchored bodies of knowledge, such as the good life (Spanish: Buen Vivir) in times of profound social upheaval, can serve as points of reference for shaping an alternative living world beyond the progressive accumulation of resources, capital and power.To the website
