0:16 Who are you and what connection do you have to the collective XXK. Feminismos, pensamiento y acción [XXK. Feminisms, Thought, and Action]? 1:20 In what year and where did the collective XXK. Feminismos, pensamiento y acción begin? 1:59 Is there a connection between the experience of 15M and the birth of this collective? 3:13 Why is your process called this? 3:57 Who is a part of this process and what drives it? 5:10 On your website, you describe yourselves as a “feminist collective.” Can you explain the legal status you have chosen for this initiative? 8:29 The XXK collective links the generation of economic income with political and vital commitment. Some might think that you are starting a profitable company that professionalizes political activism. How would you respond to someone that makes that conclusion? 12:37 On your website, you organize your work into five areas: Research, training, conceptual policy framework, political impact, and accompaniment. Why these 5 areas? What type of work does each area involve? 16:25 What relationship is there between the XXK collective and the area of formal education and research? 18:09Economistas sin Fronteras released a study this past year reporting that economics education programs in Spanish universities only focus on the teaching of capitalist economic theory. As an economist, how do you interpret these changes? 19:56 Right now in the Spanish context it seems that we have gone from talking about “feminism” alone to considering the existence of multiple “feminisms.” Can you explain this shift? 22:59 Is talking about a feminist economy the same as talking about an eco-feminist economy? Can we use the two concepts interchangeably? 25:24 What would be the background for a critical feminist perspective displayed in all of its diversity? 29:23 How do you interpret the proposals of transformative economics or social solidarity economics from a perspective in dialogue with critical feminisms? 32:04 Could you explain to someone who hasn’t studied economics why the existing capitalist economic model is problematic and what we would need to do to carry out the transition from this capitalist model toward a communal and communitarian economic model that supports the sustainability of the planet, social justice, and equity? 36:57 Do you know if the possibility of implementing this economic model alongside interventions in the legal arena is being explored? 38:01 How does the concept of “private ownership of the means of production” fit into this debate? 41:13 At the XXK collective you work on generating tools, both analytic and methodological, impacting political action and involvement. You yourself have taken part in the Congressional Reconstruction Commission to talk about caretaking as the flip side of a system urgently in need of interventions. From your point of view, is it important to be present in all areas of our reality, or are there spaces in which it isn’t necessary or important to get involved? 43:44 The critical eco-feminist viewpoint has taught us to understand that growth and capitalist expansion must be linked, in part, to the phenomenon of global chains of caretaking. In the co-dictionary section of the Constellation of the Commons and written by Camila Esguerra (Colombian anthropologist and researcher) we find a definition of this phenomenon applied to the reality of migrant persons. In one of the experiences that you have archived on the XXK website, we can hear you discuss this subject in a talk entitled “The caretaking economy in current society. Global chains of caretaking.” How do you see this phenomenon operating in the Spanish state? 48:12 At the XXK collective, how do you imagine the introduction of an economic system centered around the sustainability of life and grounded in co-responsibility? 50:29 From your perspective, who is taking charge of caretaking in situations of dependency? 53:11 Can you tell us about some of the milestones that have been achieved? 57:03 What does the future look like from a feminist viewpoint? 1:00:02 Do you work alongside other projects? 1:01:17 What does it mean that the XXK collective is a political project? 1:01:56 What is the XXK collective’s stance on copyright and Creative Commons? 1:04:09 how do you maintain your confidence in systemic transformation in a time marked by energy collapse, a crisis of our model of civilization, and a general situation of political indifference?
