The program continues with the focus on the relationship between Art and artistic processes in connection to post truth, giving the opportunity to travel to another cultures, practices and perceptions.
This day we had the real honour to have international virtual speakers including Alessandro Rolandi, multimedia and performance artist, social activist, researcher, writer and educator. His work "focuses on social intervention and relational dynamics to expand the notion of art practice beyond existing structures, spaces and hierarchies, engaging with reality through strategic decentralized autonomous practices". Alessandro has been based in China until 2020, he is the founder and director of the Social Sensibility R&D Department at Bernard Controls Industries in Beijing (2010-ongoing) and Paris/Gonesse (2016-ongoing) and a founding partner of the Social Sensibility Research Institute (SoSense).

We also had the opportunity to listen to Txaro Arrazola, artist and professor at the University of the Basque Country, who gave us a more in depth perspective of academic research on the topic of post truth. Here some information about her practice:
In addition, we had another perspective on the topic from Bernard Fairhurst, artist and psychologist. He gave us more insights on the perception on truth including concepts such as delusion, paredolia, among others. Also he focused on how photography, perceived as truth is actually a format that include only two dimensions of reality which is far from being true.
