The term ‘Open PEI’ refers to the specific activities organised as part of the MACBA Independent Studies Programme that are open to the public.
These activities – which can include public debates, seminars, workshops, audiovisual screenings and lectures – share and bring to light the research lines developed in the PEI, which also engage with the MACBA’s programme of exhibitions and activities.

This seminar challenges the feminist, gay, lesbian and queer historiography of the English-speaking world, its key concepts and its timeframes, comparing them to the micropolitical production of the South and of dictatorial, post-dictatorial and postcolonial contexts, from Latin America to Spain. For our purposes here, the South is not simply a geographic reference, but a counter-topia that allows us to deconstruct the capitalist and colonial practices of the North. The seminar also draws on camp aesthetics and queer politics to account for a multiplicity of decolonial and post-identitary sexual guerrilla and gender dissent practices that challenge the hegemonic techniques of the production of sexual difference and their corresponding institutions of cultural reproduction.
