Establishing a thread from which to rethink history is always complex. From where do we establish what, how or why? Throughout this course we will approach some of the stories that allow us to write history from another place. We will position ourselves in a specific place and time (in the late 1980s and early nineties), but knowing that we are displaced, aware of not being at the centre but on the periphery. We propose six ways of encouraging our bodies to think of those other fragmented, silenced, social, political, technological and queer bodies. Each session will be conducted by a different speaker, thus fragmenting our voices, but above all, expanding them.

Contemporary art course directed by Imma Prieto, independent curator, art critic and contemporary art lecturer. With the participation of Marcel·lí Antúnez, Xabier Arakistain, Eva González-Sancho, Rogelio López Cuenca and María Ruido.
