One of the aims of the Conference is also to explore divergent forms and methods of communicating and producing knowledge. With this in mind and making recourse both to the practice of walking and of art, the conference program is divided into three different sections.

The first one has to do with the traditional form of making knowledge public: debating ideas and collectively thinking such as academic presentations. This part will take place in the Bizkaia Aretoa (UPV-EHU).

The second one, as an ordinary or banal way of thinking and knowing, will be developed through walking. Each day two guided walks along different, even antagonistic, routes that link Bizkaia Aretoa and Bulegoa Zb will help us to know post-industrial Bilbo.

The third, developed in collaboration with the office for art and knowledge Bulegoa Zb , a collaborative initiative created around a common interest in processes of historization, cultural translation, performativity, the body, postcolonialism, social theory, archival strategies and education. This section will take place in that same space and will propose other ways of knowing through performance, audio-visual materials and arts.
