The first Temporal exhibition of 2021 corresponds to Territories of life on the edge. Mediterranean Mountain Pastoral Commons in the XXI century. Pastoral commons of the Mediterranean mountains are pastures conserved, generation after generation, by local communities of herders, through a reasoned governance, implying a permanent negotiation and communitarian decision-making to assure a sustained use of the pasture year after year and an egalitarian access to all its members.
The Exhibition has been coordinated by Pablo Domínguez (CNRS, France) and developed with the contributions from 23 people from six countries (Spain, France, Morocco, Montenegro, Serbia, and Turkey), belonging to several research, cooperation, and media fields. The Exhibition includes both pictures and audiovidual materials.
The second Exhibition of 2021 has been published in June, Gibraltar and La Línea: a cross-border community in oral memory, prepared by Beatriz Díaz Martínez, an environmental biologist specialized in oral memory.
The third exhibition, entitle The involution of human development: Iraq, 1990-2003, looks at the vulnerability of living conditions for people during times of catastrophe, at the fragility of so-called «Human development», which we associate with improved health, education, basic wellbeing, and gender equality. Our example is Iraq in the 1990s and the catastrophe was the system of exhaustive sanctions imposed on the country from 1990 to 2003 —in this case, a decision by the international community. The Exhibition has been prepared by Carlos Varea, member of the Biology Department at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain).
