Marina Garcés

Philosopher and writer

Marina Garcés (Barcelona, 1973) is a tenured lecturer in Arts and Humanities Studies at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (Open University of Catalonia). Her work is mainly concerned with politics, critical thought and the need to build up a philosophical voice that is able to interpellate and commit. She is author of the books En las prisiones de lo posible (In the Prisons of the Possible, Bellaterra, 2002) and Un mundo común (A Common World, Bellaterra, 2013) and, very recently Filosofía inacabada (Unfinished Philosophy, Galaxia Gutenberg, 2015). She has also written for many periodical and collective publications such as Humanitats en Acció (Raig Verd, 2019). In 2002, she was a founder, and is still coordinator of the project “Espai en Blanc”, a group initiative in favour of a committed, practical and experimental relationship with philosophical thought.
