"On listening and (self) education"
In his residence Cibele created a space-environment with annotations, images, references and objects that could relate some work experiences of the Contrafilé Group. This kind of open diary intersects fragments of some routes developed by this group: the project-work "Children's rebellion", emphasizing specific aspects, such as "The Park to Play and Think" , "El Patio" and " Arbol -School " , to which Contrafilé is currently dedicated.
The name of this exhibition is "On listening and (self) education", part of Cibele's interest in exploring the "self-educational" dimension of the projects it has carried out with Contrafilé. In this research process, he tries to understand the elements and situations that make up this dimension, such as the quality of listening necessary in parenting.
"On listening and (self) education" is open to the public at this time, and invites people to complement through informal conversations with Cibele, the importance of listening in educational processes.
