About the Speaker 
Nicolás Consuegra is currently pursuing his Masters in MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology (ACT). He is deeply interested in the issues of heterogeneity, seriality, and appropriation, and uses these concepts to take a plural and disobedient approach to his subjects of study. Consuegra’s artistic practice aims to address issues related to the contexts of production and exhibition, as well as the types of audiences that relate to these contexts. Over the past few years he has concentrated on topics that deal with representation (both artistic and cultural), and analyzing them from a colonial and postcolonial standpoint. He’s also focused much of his research on the study of space, and how architecture acts as a porous and non-neutral discipline that indirectly instructs us on how to live together in society. This research has lead him to develop both discreet sculptural pieces and large-format installations that explore the notions and conventions we have about objects, public space, and private space.
