Workshops & Talks:


2019

- 'Fidgeting: lo accidental dentro de las prácticas colectivas'. The first part of the workshop we spoke about curation and art practices that can be developed around the ideas of collectiveness, the accident, doing although not knowing and the senses.  For the second part of the workshop we conducted a collective card-image based game in which every decision or gesture opens up a spectrum of possible diffraction that culminates in a polyphonic reading, not linear or necessarily reflective but attentive and incarnated; reflecting actively upon the idea of trust and the uncertain. 

2018

- Talk about my practice at Swatch Creative Natives Tribune, Madrid - 25th October. 

- 'Beta testing' a workshop with Jara Rocha and María Ptqk at Matadero, Madrid. Beta-testing session of a reading-writing game to be designed.  An interruption of the current flow of interpretations of the mundane/immediate world.

- 'To Melt the Ice That’s Left; Leftovers, Pizza Crusts, Broken Biscuits', a workshop with Esther Gatón and Sonia Fernández Pan at La Casa Encendida, Madrid. A theoretical, practical, polypoetic workshop on insurgent words in exhausted, exuberant times.

2017

- Talk about my work to the art education students from Universidad Escuni - 24th November
