In this conversation artist Asunción Molinos Gordo speaks with Associate Professor Miguel Robles-Durán about CENEDET, an autonomous research group based in Quito, Ecuador which he founded in 2013 with Professor David Harvey. CENEDET sought to open spaces for reflection, criticism and debate on the socio-spatial transformations of the Ecuadorian territory. Through research on the uneven geographical development and the production of space from the historical-geographical materialist approach, the project endeavoured to advance radical strategies of social change, based on the principles of socio-ecological justice and the right to territory.
