Reclaiming Spaces of Sexual Dissidence: Artivism, archivism, trauma and LGBTQIA utopias

Andrés Senra (1968) is a Spanish multimedia artist. He investigates the creation of affective and social networks and how support and affinity groups are created in different queer, LGBT, migrants and homeless communities. His work has been exhibited in important galleries and museums around the world such as Reina Sofía MNCARS (Spain), VanAbbe Museum (Holland), Art Center Nabi (Korea) or Centro Cultural Recoleta (Argentina). This is a meeting and conversation with Andrés Senra highlighting four topics in his work: the vindication of public queer spaces as places of emotional and political encounter, the creation of queer collective archives as aesthetic and political devices, the reflection on utopian thought as a model for the creation of affective and self-managed communities, and the ritual, celebration and performance as a way to exorcise the trauma of a common history of homophobia and heteropatriarchy.
