The specific project that the artist Lara Almarcegui (Zaragoza, 1972. Lives and works in the Netherlands) has developed for the space of Gallery 6 of the IVAM focuses its attention on mining rights. For this, it has taken as a research space a space of the Valencian context, specifically the Agras volcano in Cofrentes, which was exploited as a quarry by the cement industry from the mid-seventies to the eighties.

Almarcegui proposes a reflection on the ownership of exploration rights, research and exploitation of minerals found in the subsoil. These rights are public property and are managed by administrations, which assign them to third parties.
