Join us for this special in conversation between researcher, curator, translator and educator, Carlota Mir and Polly Wright, Programme Producer at Brighton CCA. This discussion takes Mir’s chapter Stretching the Institution, Cultivating Interdependency: Feminist Curating as Political Organising in the Post-Crisis Spanish State featured in the recently published book Curating as Feminist Organizing as a starting point and will introduce her current work with Project Art Works. There will be space for questions, thoughts and making connections facilitated by Wright.
Carlota Mir (1991) is a researcher, curator, translator and educator currently based in Madrid. She graduated in Art History and French at the University of Sussex in 2013 and has lived and worked across Europe for the past decade. Her research and curatorial practice centre an expanded notion of feminisms coming from different socially engaged positions that intersect.
Mir currently combines her PhD research at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, which revolves around collective feminist genealogies of knowledge production in post-dictatorial Spain, with her independent curatorial practice. Mir is currently leading the project Cosmologías Vulnerables in collaboration with hablarenarte, Project Art Works and the Museo Reina Sofía, which investigates the crossings between artistic practice, disability, neurodivergence and institutionality. She is also a member of the Artistic Team in the Danish refugee justice centre Trampoline House, a lumbung member at documenta fifteen. She is a co-editor of the forthcoming volume ‘Propositions on Translocal Solidarity’ (Archive Books, 2023). Her work has been published by Routledge and Sternberg Press, amongst others.
This event has been co-organised with Lara Perry.
