ELIZABETH GALLÓN DROSTE is a multimodal researcher and visual artist. Her work focuses on socio-environmental crises and conflicts around bodies of water, affective geographies and relational ontologies. Since 2014, she has been part of Sinfonía Trópico and Filmouflage (Colombia-Germany), two platforms that raise awareness of biodiversity loss and its consequences through dialogues between arts and science, local collective processes and audio-visual encounters. She is currently a PhD candidate at the International Graduate School “Temporalities of Future” at the Free University in Berlin. She is navigating the spokespersonship of the Atrato River by ethno-territorial organizations, given the recognition of the basin-in the department of Chocó-Colombia- as a Subject of Rights through ruling T-622 of 2016.
