The Art of Tracing Water

December 14, 2021

Claudia González Godoy in conversation with Alessandra Burotto Tarky and Laura Schmidt 

Clean water is essential for life on earth. Access to it has been a declared human right by the UN since 2010. In a country like Chile, where water is no public good, rivers hence become a symbol of a ruthless and failed economic system.

To the Event
