The activity is divided into two sessions aimed at reflecting on research systems and proposing speculative relationships between theoretical contexts, in addition to defining methods of data collection and research structures from visual arts, to the margins of university academicism.
These sessions, mediated by Sofía Alemán Arozena, Miguel Rubio Tapia and Álvaro Porras Soriano (artist from Programa d’Art i Context), are presented as a study group in which the research carried out by the attendees is gathered together to generate routes and exchanges – fluid, apophenic and chimerical – among the discursive proposals of each person involved in the activity.
Sofía Alemán Arozena (Tenerife, 1997) carries out research in photographic theory and practice, its relationship with the development of contemporary visual elements and their symbolic order. She graduated in Fine Arts from La Laguna University and Manchester Metropolitan University. She studied for a Masters in Photography, Art and Technique and the Masters in Artistic Production at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. She is currently studying towards a Doctorate Programme in Art: Production and Research at the Polytechnic University of Valencia.
Miguel Rubio Tapia (La Palma, 1999) works in artistic practice and curating. His subject of study relates to the formalisations made by power, from capitalist production trends to the production of knowledge, in order to legitimise and reproduce them through the body. He graduated in Fine Arts from La Laguna University, in the Multidisciplinary branch. He is currently finishing his Masters in Artistic Production at the Polytechnic University of Valencia.
