Contribution for the Artistic Journal Obre els Ulls, Rubí.
The purpose of this contribution is to examine how spatial configurations can modify social structures and power relations. We will focus on the performative power of the act of occupying space and the subversive potential of generating new uses of public spaces. My text stems from my discussions with Hannah Sommer (UCL) on her research on the concept of refugee and of the experience of living in the margins of society. Within this conceptual framework, the experience of nomadism acquired for us a political significance and the bodies which occupy these liminal spaces become critical in themselves.

TOWARDS A LINGUISTIC RECONCILIATION: COMMITTED LITERATURE AND REDEMPTION IN WALTER BENJAMIN
June 22, 2017
BA DISSERTATION. UAB
The aim of this paper is to examine the problem of committed literature in Walter Benjamin's essay “The author as producer” (1934). Against the predominantly materialist approach to the essay, I defend that a dialectic structure, which I have named “dialectics of return”, originated in Benjamin's early philosophy of language in theological categories and reformulated afterwards in antropologic
terms. Words in Brecht or Baudelaire become, from this new perspective, a setting for revelation, linked to the instant, which enables a dialectical turn to the reconcile men with phenomena.
