Extraction: The Raft of the Medusa

Salomé Lama

Intersección publishes, in collaboration with the publishing house Estraperlo, the book Extraction: The Raft of the Medusa, as part of a project that covers different artistic fields, and in which the multi-awarded artist Salomé Lamas makes an intense social, ethical-political and environmental reflection around human migration, colonial and post-colonial power and climate change. All this is interwoven in a text that nourishes on countless references to aesthetic and philosophical thoughts, converging in a deep, sensitive and committed work. The author, Salomé Lamas, and Enrique Lista, the editor, will participate in the presentation.
