To achieve this freedom of knowledge, it is necessary to postulate the conversion of the private exclusively into a public form.

 About the project: "Contar el Futuro" (“Telling the future”) is a review of the futurist narrative grass rooted from Popular Technologies.  It arises from the question: what about the future will think a boy from a periphery area?  The project's main objective is to explore the deepness of popular technology that does not necessarily correspond to "high tech", rescuing a specific alternative for our own contexts.

Karen Paola Bernedo Morales (Lima – Perú)

Producer and Co-Director of the "BIOS-workers of art."


About the project:  It will develop the virtual counterpart of the "Museo Itinerante - Arte por la memoria" " (“Art for Memory – Itinerary Museum”), transforming it into a living museum, virtual and cross-disciplinary, on the Internet.  The Web component considers receiving and stimulating projects and interactive dynamics of reconstruction of the collective memory in topics of political violence and internal armed conflict, opening spaces of reflection and debate.



Jazmín Gabriela Flores del Pozo (Lima-Peru)

 Visual artist who focuses her work on various issues of Peruvian society, like poverty, exclusion, identity, discrimination and others.  Currently teaches drawing and painting in Fatima's jail.  


About the project: The project involves the creation of a virtual environment, similar to the SIMS game, where users create an avatar and live a parallel life.  The virtual space will represent the city of Lima and its districts, and will incorporate socio-cultural common features of different areas of the local context for his characters: costumes and popular music, colloquial speeches and classifying multicultural terms from a city as Lima is. The system will look like a game but actually disclose relevant information about our cultural identity as a degree of self-acceptance, discrimination, and socio-cultural expectations.
