CONCEPT – SOCIAL SCULPTURE
This proposal is to develope a new form of production of cultural communication through a series of EVENTS and online DATABASES about the human experience of sculpture, produced by a network of European experts. The production of this communication system, through an international network, is made from five different fields: that are: the Educationl workshops, The Art simposiums, The Human sciences resarches, The online ART exhibitions, and the online teaching.
From these fields, the idea is to create a structure of cultural production, artistically creative, to compile information on the human experience of sculpture that will spread in several products (micro-essays, videos, photos, graphics) and that will add up as an online cloud of common knowledge. The proposal is based on the invitation of scientists, artists and scholars from around Europe (based on the context of the co-organizers) to participate and generate new content the topic of the projec TERRA, in an experimental art form, in the context of relational art. Each project fields generates a number of content items, and these contents are positioned in the network. The TERRATORRY project is a step ahead in the transnational relations between culture agents in the field of sculpture. The main idea is to strengthen the links we already have by exploring new situations than can expand the traditional roles of sculpture as art practice, by enlarging the concept of sculpture, taking the definition of sculpture as a social parameter.
Mainly all big scale sculpture projects are named after the city or the region where the project is helded. This project differs from that. It orient itself on expand the territorial, geographical, boundaries into the territory of researches on practice-based and theory based sculptural discourse. Therefore the title of the project it’s conceptual quibble on word terraitory. Sculpture is a form of art basically connected with ground, land or Earth, which in Latin word is Terra, and Terra is also the name of satellite, a multi-national NASA scientific research satellite in a Sun-synchronous orbit around the Earth. Furthermore, Terra is a name of International sculpture symposium in terracotta in Kikinda, founded in 1982. In terms of large format sculpture in terracotta and contemporary art, symposium Terra is certainly unique in the world in that area. On the opposite side of once upon a time same state (ex-Yugoslavia), on the Adriatic part of Croatia, is Vrsar (Poreč) with it traditionally running Montraker School of Sculpting. Since 1991 the students and professors from various European Art Academies are sculpturing there in stone and displayed them on all around local area (landscape, urban places) . The determinant of such symposiums and schools is its yearly regional cooperation’s. The Territory project relay on the cross borders and major exchange of students of art Academies, artistic experiences and artist from different European countries and abroad, affects of which they should all produce totally new projects. Poreč and Kikinda do host artists from Europe and abroad, but the Territory project pay very important intention on on line and social media presentations done by join partners from Madrid and Maribor. The main roll of partners , so call self producers, of the Territory project will be a co-operation between social and new media concepts with the artists, curators and other institutions or organizations related to contemporary sculpture discourse. Due to the facts that in Vojovidina region are 32 ethnical groups and in Istria 15, the Territory project will take the role of initiating educational and social activities, such as multicultural education and the acquisition of local societies. The programme of the activities is supposed to be a result of constant partnership contacts on the project, as well with the artists, students, managers and curators from all around Europe. Beside interdisciplinary art creation and production the Territory will focus on establish a network in the sustainable mobility around art centres, residencies and other spaces, places and initiatives in Europe. Mobilities embrace at the wide level rural destinations, where most of the residential centres for art creation and presentation are, to urban landscapes with their institutions’ constellations and open territories between both. By long-term cooperation partners' centres are structuring and further developing infrastructural and off- and on-line media supportive environment in relation to information-communication technologies, digital culture and art creation, from sculptural production and presentation to research and education.
Therefore main focus of the TERRATORY project is to develop new sculptures practices and processes through collaboration, as well as by sharing understandings through forms of various ‘training’. Beside classical forms of sculpture (stone, terracotta) the project propose new forms as audio-visual sculpturing, sound sculpturing, musical instrumental sculpturing, on-line sculpturing, rubbish art sculpturing and social media sculpturing. The web-platform will in time be a resource that opens up access to all these and other resources: lectures, events, archival material, publications, workshops, symposia and seminars, social sculpture projects and a field of interconnected individuals, initiatives and organisations. In this terms discourse on sculpture linked to the Territory project share a number of core interests, understanding and concerns turning. Thanks to its activities, the project intend to become “a living sculpturalistic organism”, spread thru - as we point out in the title - from territory to galleries and from galleries (Earth) to Galaxy.
The TERRATORY social sculpture, is based on two projects with a long tradition, both related to physical sculpture (the university workshops in Porec, Croatia ) and the simposia for artists in KIKINDA, Serbia. The aim of the whole project is to generate a new whole concept, by making a dynamic flow between these institutions, and incorporating new agents that work in the avant-garde of art and communication. The Rol of LAPIEZA and XOP, as partners is to incorporate the new media to the traditional structures, and enlarge the visibility and the communication. There will be a wide production of seminars with students and professors, as well as online teaching through video-databases, and the production of videos, interviews and exhibitions (both on site and on-line).
SPAIN > LAPIEZA ART SERIES
Anto Lloveras – Director Curator|
LAPIEZA AC is a culture association that is nowadays working in three interconnected issues.
1 | PRODUCING online EXHIBITIONS, (lapieza art series) http://lapiezalapieza.blogspot.no - http://issuu.com/lapieza
2 | GENERATING AUDIOVISUAL CONTENT FOR THE internet CLOUD (tomoto films) https://www.youtube.com/user/TOMOTOFILMS/videos
3 | TEACHING high culture THROUGH ONLINE VIDEO DATABASES (youtube breakfast) http://youtubebreakfast.blogspot.com
LAPIEZA is a Contemporary Art Association whose main characteristic lies on creating a continuous Relational Art System, of a dynamic nature. The concept is not focused only in the generation and exhibition of objects, but to generate links and new form of work. The work of LAPIEZA is both focused in creating content for the internet, where a global audience can reach the ideas, and holding exhibitions worldwide. The internet is used as a form where there can be a immediate democratization of high culture. The youth is spending more time in the internet than watching tv or reading, therefore it is political action to put the high cultural nutrients visible and reachable, where anyone can consume and share (through blogs and social media). LAPIEZA is therefore a pioneering experimental concept that requires the contribution of different artists and researchers from different disciplines for it’s completion. Since 2009 LAPIEZA Works in various orders:
Artistic: as contemporary art form.
Social: as break with outdated paradigms.
Relationlal: on the creation of a network of artists and culture agents.
Communication: as Medium to reach the maximum online exposure for all the partners and artists related to the projet.
Didactics, generating tools for online teaching based on video databases.
LAPIEZA has come to life through progressive steps. An Initial phase (2009-2012) generating a stabile network of artist and holding 30 exhibitions in Madrid, and the online positioning, consolidation and expansion (2013-2018), developing 45 online exhibitions, and generating synergies in 10 cities in Europe and Mexico. LAPIEZA is an avant-garde SocioPlastic concept due to its several layers:
The continuous Flash exhibitions online, and the dynamic flow.
The Cooperative work as regular issue.
The Integrative aspect, having artists from different backgrounds and legitimations.
The daily Online broadcasting gives as an outreaching quality
This project progresses alongside others already existing and might live side by side with others that might branch out from the same project. Up and coming art acquirement doesn't come as an innocuous pass time, it implies a status shift for the buyer, opening up doors to new artistic and social environments. The urgency of this approach is determined by: An artistic form that uses the immediacy of social media. The solidification of an artistic form developed during the past years in a specific space in Madrid. The difference with other artistic approaches lies in it's relational socio-plastic concept based on the idea of collective series consisting of artworks spread around the works, eeach by ten different artists. This approach stresses the importance of THE IDEA as expressed by Marcel Duchamp in contrast with more conservative and established formats present on the net. The RELATIONAL quality of the work multiplies it's mediatic impact. The dynamics involved in the production processess fit right into a net format. The net itself is an essential part of the approach due to it's periodic and accumulative qualities.
LAPIEZA will act as a light dinamic agent to generate new forms of communication for the seminars and workshops, while Building and publishing 5 new online exhibitons with artists from all the TERRATORRY network. Including artists from Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia (partnership countries) and another SIX countries from European Union. LAPIEZA will also generate online video databases with interviews of the artists, and will add context videos from all the study and curatorial trips around europe, where new artista will be added to the network and to the ART SERIES. LAPIEZA will also deliver 2 artists from its own network to the workshops in Kikinda and Porec. LAPIEZA will develope and expand the online teaching tool - youtube breakfast - for students and professionals. The Tool is already active in 3 universities - Autónoma de Madrid, URJC Madrid, NTNU Norway.
Architect, Artist and Curator.

CROATIA > POREC UNIVERISTY
Public Open University of Porec, founded in 1960, is organizing educational, cultural and artistics events on local, regional and national level. Besides theatre and cinema shows, jazz and classical concerts and Street Art Festival, POU organize solo and group contemporary art exhibitions in three town galleries. Among most prominent one are Annale, an oldest Croatian exhibition of contemporary art, and Photodistorzija, a photo biennale. All annual exhibitions are edited by catalogue. POU is the founder of the International Montraker School of Sculpturing and since 1991 acts as project leader and organization manager. Co-organizing it with local community and art Academies from Zagreb, Rijeka, Split, Ljubljana, Venice the Montraker School offer students the possibility to work and express themselves on large scale stone sculpture. Students are led through their work by mentors and assistents, and their sculptures are displayed all around urban and rural local area.

POU Project management - Objectives
• Co-ordination of the activities of the project
• Quality assurance of the project’s deliverables and the processes leading to them
• Overall legal, contractual, ethical, financial and administrative management of the project
• Management of the project’s decision-making processes
• Organisation of internal communication
Description of work and role of partners. The project management will create and support the conditions necessary for a successful and effective collaboration and performance within the project, and coordinate all consortium meetings (plenary meetings, project management boardmeetings, steering group meetings and technical management group meetings). POU will liaise with partners and their leaders to ensure an effective monitoring of performance of the internal management as well as warranting the best overall performance. Progress reports will include status updates on IPR clearing in order to ensure that rights will be cleared by the end of the project, as well as updates (in collaboration with all partners) on the number of works that have been digitised and on the number of items that have been prepared for ingestion and ultimately also have been delivered to Europeana. This will be accomplished by creating well-defined management and decision-making structures. In order to work as efficiently as possible, the project management will install internal quality monitoring procedures, by establishing an external monitoring process involving external experts who will check and validate the main project deliverables and the strategic decisions made during the project lifecycle. Next to these monitoring procedures, a Project Risk Register will be created and maintained. It identifies and categorises all potential strategic risks to the successful delivery of the project. For each risk area, mechanisms for risk mitigation are identified and, in the case of risks that are rated as highly likely to occur or as having a high impact on the successful delivery, contingency action is proposed. The risk management of the project will be elaborated on in the quality plan. (D1.1. Quality plan). POU will ensure that all milestones are reached as far as practicable and that the deliverables are supplied on time, are of the required quality and follow the formal guidelines. It will also ensure that a consortium agreement gets signed by all project partners. The project management will represent project TERRA in official contexts and communicate directly with the Project Officer. It will supervise the compliance of the performance with the work plan and the resource employment as scheduled. POU will also be in charge of financial coordination within and across the work packages, reporting and administrative activities including quarterly project reports. The management will process the transfer of the respective shares of the financial support received from the Commission to the partners and prepare Financial reports for the Commission. POU will also ensure the creation and delivery by the consortium of all records of effort (Annual report including financial statement, Final project report and Final financial statement). Together with the XOP and LAP on dissemination, POU will also ensure and create effective communication structures and tools. POU is horizontal and lays above all other work packages
The idea behind the school is to utilize abandoned quarry Montraker in Vrsar and also present opportunity to students of Croatian and foreign academies to work in large stone pieces. Significance of Montraker is essential and multifaceted: Academy students can work on larger pieces of stones and perform their own work that is displayed placed in a public space. The school also expands cultural and tourist offer of Vrsar, which thus becomes a unique city of sculpture. A large portion of the students that worked in Montraker are now accomplished and recognized artists. Montraker also allows for cultural exchanges between the Croatian and neighboring countries making contacts between cultural and educational institutions, which enhances their future cooperation.

Association for Contemporary Art X-OP,
head: Peter Tomaž Dobrila
Association for Contemporary Art X-OP is an outcome of the EU Culture Programme project X-OP - eXchange of art operators and producers and since 2011 is gradually growing network of artists, researchers, operators, producers, organisations, institutions and art centers with the aim to establish European platform for creation and exchange of art and science, education and research, culture and media. With its places, spaces and user accustomed technological infrastructure it fosters mobility of artists, theoreticians and executives. It is built to strengthen the pan-European collaboration, common production and interdisciplinary approach to art.
ROL > Through the international the network of the Association X-OP partner institutions and organisations from all over Europe art realisation is outlined by various segments of creators, from practical to theoretical, each of us contouring our professional skills and preferences. Therefore productions result in complex artistic procedures of building art-works that consider all aspects of approaches and consist of all necessary elements and needed parts and facts to be ready for touring around and showing on all spaces. Art-work is a set-up of fluidly assembled sources and is structured for environment transformation to accommodate new surrounding circumstances and existing conditions.

Objective 1 - Reinforcement of the cultural and creative sector's capacity to operate trans-nationally:
Priority 1.1 - Supporting actions providing cultural and creative players with skills, competences and know-how that contribute to strengthening the cultural and creative sectors, including encouraging adaptation to digital technologies, testing innovative approaches to audience development and testing of new business and management models
Objective 2 - Promoting transnational circulation and mobility:
Priority 2.3 - Supporting audience development as a means of stimulating interest in and improving access to European cultural and creative works and tangible and intangible cultural heritage
The notion is to define a platform where we can invite different groups Both inside university, students, teachers, professors, and outside university, professionals, to fullfill a pioneer Proposal to generate knowledge about the human experience of sculpture in new and experimental formats and new networks of knowledge diffusion. In sum, we will try to Develop a method to use the available online culture. A platform well designed, not only a knowledge library watertight, but a way to generate new knowledge, related, on the subject of the project. Specifically, this platform will enable, among other things, the following:
a) Generating new conceptual connections.
b) Accessibility to content as key factor.
c) Generate a discussion on how you can lecture yourselve and spread high culture with the net cloud.
d) Establish your own database and Work with the existing.
e) Develop method, create discussion with link to concrete conceptual contents online.
The idea is to expand the network we have been working in recent years through various projects developed by the co-organizers of this proposal: Of special interest is the international framework and in this case the European context, to develop the network of production and diffusion of contemporary culture from academic and professional fields.
2. OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT / RELEVANCE TO THE AIMS
• Generate a system Between the partners as a relational art project, building a solid conceptual research network using a system tested last three years in the art field.
• Common Knowledge in clouds building as part of the teaching method and diffusion of culture.
The main objective is to restructure the academic classical methodology of knowledge and cultural production, generating outward relations, more transparent and accessible to the public through the Internet and assuming a high internationalization component.
- Generate research about the Paradigm of Sculpture in human experience from a transdisciplinary perspective.
- Generate a transnational network of production and dissemination of knowledge on this subject.
- Promote cultural coexistence and the projection of science through modern mechanisms.
- Make high culture more accessible through networks.
- Contribute content to the current generation of memory (network) of the thought and contemporary knowledge.
- Promote equality and empower researchers and their relationship with the living arts.
- Encourage cooperation between academic and cultural agents.
- Promoting transnational meetings as a basis for cultural understanding.
- Create opportunities for experimental encounter between professional scientists-artists-among themselves and with the interested public.
- Foster relationships between scientific and artistic production through joint dissemination and interaction.
- Testing of small-scale network to continue building larger contexts of production and distribution cooperative.
3. WORKSHOPS MICROESSAYS SYMPOSIA EXHIBITIONS >
It aims to open a channel of cultural transfer to the global society, by providing citizens contrasting scientific evidence on the subject of the project. International Research Network on the paradigm of sculpture.
4. SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES ACTIVITIES
The proposal builds on a new form of production, based on contemporary social model, as embodied in the following phases of production. From all the on-site meetings, there will be an on-line echo as communication artform.
01 generate a visible network with specialists who will contribute with input on the project topic suggested by the actors involved.
02 student on-site sculpture workshops > with online teaching
03 artist on site simposium > with online exhibitions
04 onsite field research > online microessays
Objective: the idea is to be visible and create ties between citizens of europe, that the theory is easily read. Methodology: use the platform transnational LAPIEZA (dynamic agent, producer of motor) for exchanges, more intense and more hearing. Participants with little effort go into a horizontal network of thought.
One thing is the relevance interproyectual (capital thesis) and other media is the relevance of that post (symbolic capital) is another important relational (social capital): the text functions as social artifact
Each co-organizer is promptedto compile a list of the agents who want to enter into the project. So the four platforms provide equity capital to the network.It gives shape to the idea: the paradigm of sculpture today. What is sculpture? Is science, is object, is bod, is art, is architecture. The sculpture thing in the broad sense: we have a variety of inputs. You can associate the tags by region to see the dominance of certain ideas by cultural region. A transnational collaboration is the sample of which is distilled from three points. This same study started from three origins can generate a very different document. The vortices where the structure of thought starts tend to validate the forms established, why use three starting points guarantees a certain complexity and openness of the concept. A real exploration in transcultural thought generation.
The essays, the videos and the images will be read as a new cloud, associated with the transnational TERRA project. Dependence of the linearity is obsolete in the development of complex thinking. The most important is to highlight the most interesting ideas, no matter if that idea was created 100 years ago or 10 minutes ago.
HOW EACH ONES EXPERIENCE ADDS
CREATE A NETWORK
We are all communicators, the research will study and develop how the building of an audience in new media affects the established forms of communication today. The theory online grows and the access is simple. Part of the work is to curate the reading and link forward relevant information. The media property is now primarily created by independently producers. Individuals could have means of exposure on scale comparable to mass media. But how is the media we create and how can we develop it? The idea is to create a network between artists and science groups both inside and outside university. A network of actors interested in the field. We will connect with different professionals that are interested on discussions online, using all resources and the databases to communicate. The idea is to push for a change, online work and education, creating oniste and online seminars. The field is revolutionary and it alouds easely to share common contents. We can develop and audience towards the field curated by professionals.
REINFORCEMENT AND CONNECTIVITY
OPEN SOURCE – MEETING POINTS - TEACHING GLOBAL –
EXPERIMENTAL PROPOSAL.The research project has an experimental dimension, parallel to the theoretical analisis. the medium is the message (Marshall McLuhan). New forms of teaching and learning are emerging with use of new technologies. The cultural turn to open source is part of the research approaches. To read the trends and show how users are willing to use the databases. The research will stimulate to creative thinking. The idea is to design a metatheory drawn as theoretical cloud. To make possible and emergency in teaching that is to fast and easy establish a wider picture of a theoretical knowledge. new media has to be tested with a larger audience. The structure of an open course for theoretical studies in architecture and design praxis is relevant today. open course applications to be read from a wider spectrum of users. The works remains on the internet and is part of a research strategy to increase the material available online. A structured meta structure to access the conceptual cloud is needed. A structured systems of video links by e-mail, a structure of a new methodology.
How do we structure the knowledge? The research will discuss the different knowledge sources and practical and real application of the sources. The research connects readings with teaching the databases as an active source of inspiration for application in design. Sculpture is a complex field that extracts inspiration from different disciplines, the research will improve the methodology to acces the different sources.
INNOVATION TO AUDIECES ONLINE
By using scientific method to experiment and collect data, We will try to demonstrate what sculpture is nowadays. The professionas of the field will give their voices and thoughts. The artist will show their skills. The students will learn new lessons. And we will collect data as a relational art form, and place it online.
The relevant contents is part of the general pedagogical network research system.
GO BEYOND LIMITS
ACCESIBLE TECHNOLOGY The proposal of this work is in part to create the media, as video conferences or other video recorded forms. Walks on sites, interviews, seminars. By links we expect that the flow of audience will increase, making publicity of the institution, and NEW NETWORKS ON PROFESSIONAL GROUND By reading the databases shared online you develope the imagination of its potentiality to transmit ideas. The professional ground generates new network connections. The idea is to share contents, new strategies of communication are being developed, new forms of working strategies and new forms of study methods can be developed. Part of the research is to study professional ground how they acces the medium and if they use it. How they use it and why.
TRIPS TEACHING PUBLISHING
LECTURE YOURSELF v- The experiment shows that you can lecture yourself. The online video experimental format I want to prove will help us to structure a new way of teaching, and new ways of learning. ACcess to information has a new revolutionary form. The present application wants to study this phenomenona, and new paradigm and follow and reflect within the experimental phase the possible development the medium will have the following years.
A new method of overlaping activities from existing projects will geneerate hybirid content that will be to explore and develop. The technology is available, the critical theory is the strength for students to define and defend their projectual thesis. The method created shares common contents to start with and develops a critical discussion around the ideas connected to the cloud. The method is developed within a blog structure, and links and e-mails to the documents on the databases. As all methods this is just the beginning and for us it is a challenge to develop it further on and generate an online visibility of the process of work and an online visibility of results.
SHORT PERIOD - TESTING THE IDEA
KNOWLEDGE TRANSMISION and EXPERIMANTATION The potentiality to develop a critical discussion within science, teaching, art exhibiion and social sculpture can take a long period of time. However, the TERRA project is built to generate an experimental metodology that will be tested in 24 months. The budget is tight and the chronology of events is an overlap of existing systems, that will be co-working during the 24 months.
UNIVERTISTY ARTISTS THEORISTS PROFESSIONALS
FROM SPECIALIZED LYBRARIES, TO SOCIAL UNSTABLE MEDIA.
The speed of communication is increasing by new media. Production and distribution online is increasing. Global databases are available. Audiovisual databases have traditionally being connected with specialised libraries. The library George Pompidou in Paris well known for it’s collection of video art data, are now emerging in the new media network. New accesses are being created. The traditional libraries are still popular and the research will use time for comparison and description of relevant texts.
MULTILAYERED – NON PROFESSIONALS AND ARTISTS. STUDENTS. THEORIST.
LINKS TO SOCIAL MEDIA – GALAXY
YOUTUBE AND FACEBOOK SOCIAL MEDIA
Professor Marc Lynch, at Cornell University, predicts that user generated websites such as youtube.com and facebook.com will play a big role in the recruitment within the mainstream masses (Lynch, Marc 2007). The use of social medium is for us an important tool to develop education proposals. The idea of the research is to step ahead the speed of the growth of transdiscipliary works. The knowledge of different contents and the lack of specific content can allows us to further develop the social sculpture.
SIMPOSIA – TEACHING - WORKSHOP
EXHIBITIONS > GALAXY
CROSSDISCIPLINES The study themes are within the fields of sculpture, art, science and education. Thees are engines that work together. Cross disciplines work in the project as independent, yet related projects. The workskops and exibitions, will link sculpture with architecture, philosophy, psichology, sociology, anthropology and other fields that specific connected to the sculptural thinking. The meta-cloud of theory is necessary to link subjects. We will make a cultural definition of how the new media implementation affects in architecture as a process of work.The crossdisciplines map we are using today will be part of a metacritic to show a complex apparatus of we deal with.
RESEARCH A CHANGE OF PARADIGM
The production and distribution of theory today has a new potential arena for discussion. Within a collective discussion we will change the forms of today towards a technological based form to access and create our knowledge. Use of the databases, and a contribution to the databases will stimulate to access the necessary theory tool, is a challenge for these research today. Audiovisual-video online will increase inside teaching systems. Already today the data tells we are more exposed to the databases.
HOW MUCH AUDIOVISUAL WE CONSUME?
New technologies permits fast connection with internet as the medium. Marshall mcluhan predicted in the tv age the message is the medium. During the year 2007 we experimented an average of five entrance a day to the databases on internet. That means a volume of communication flow from ten minutes until one hour. If we compare it with tv data average that are four hours a day, the audiovisual form could be implemented in teaching. The tool alows the digitally storage online, access from your personal computer. And the possibility to link content to others. The university campus is equipped in ourdays with data stations and computer centrums available for the university community, most of the people have personal computers at home and at work. As part of the work the idea of making interviews and lectures, with architects, artists and scientist. Recorded and stored on the databases, we would like to establish the connections between scientists and artists and create specific theoretical cloud for students. The worksops and symposia are the basis for the generation of the networkw among professonals, atudents, resarchers and artists. The TERRA sculpture concept will be screened as a whole in all the generated mediums of exposure. All participants through the use of the web.blog of TERRA will be PROSUMERS (producer-consumer) of the genarated knowledge, and will spread their favourite ideas through the social and private media. Apart from the physical meetings (the kick off and the several workshops), all leading partners will meet once a month in an online SKYPE converastion to feed each other with the current events (and also have individual weekly online talks with JERICA ZIHERL, project director). Each partner has defined the rol in the project, and will share all contents every 4 months for the online publication.
The parnership is already a fact, since there has been previous works and collaborations. The TERRA project will stregthen the bond, so new agents from the stable platforms will be able to move from one project to another. TERRA is a project that will build on an already existing situation, ensuring and reinforcing the future transnational collaborations.
All 4 partners have international conexions, and will spread the TERRA PARTNERSHIP as part of their activities. There will be international guests to workshops and simposiums. LAPIEZA will connected to nodes in different coutries (mexico, dominican republic and brazil).

SAMUEL KHUN - PARADIGM SHIFTS
American physicist who wrote extensively on the history of science and developed several important notions in the sociology and philosophy of science. Kuhn has made several important contributions to our understanding of the progress of knowledge: science undergoes periodic "paradigm shifts" instead of progressing in a linear and continuous way these paradigm shifts open up new approaches to understanding that scientists would never have considered valid before. He wrote and published (in 1962) his best known and most influential work: the structure of scientific revolutions
PIERRE BOURDIEU - HOMO ACADEMICUS
