Agustín Frizzera Sofia Gallisá Muriente
10 May 2017

I had not met Sofia Gallisá Muriente before. I remember Don Powa telling us, loud and clear, "we must bring her", "we must absolutely bring her"... And she came.

This interview is the team’s favourite. It is about the construction after the effervescence, about the park and its daily dynamics, much as a school - a school with political implications.

She offers some thoughts, so as to visualize ourselves in another world.

I recommend it strongly. Below, the full interview:


Politics Recovered is a series of interviews to 11 leading members of the Network of Political Innovation in Latin America. Taking advantage of the fact that they were meeting in Buenos Aires, Agustín Frizzera asked them what their vision of the new ways of doing politics is, and how do they approach the building of citizens’ rights and the inclusive use of technology.

Is it time to pay reparations?

The Black Lives Matter movement has renewed demands from activists in the US and around the world seeking compensation for the legacies of slavery and colonialism. But what would a reparative economic agenda practically entail and what models exist around the world?
