Lucía Egaña begins “Subnormal Methodologies. A practical handbook for misfit researchers”

On May 2, artist Lucia Egaña Rojas begins her residency in Hangar as part of the Artistic Research Grant Fundación Banco Sabadell – Hangar.

Over a period of 8 months, Lucía Egaña will develop the project Subnormal Methodologies. A practical manual for unsuitable researchers, which will focus on the exploration of methodological possibilities in the field of cultural and creative production as well as on militant research, based on the contamination of disciplines and practices.

The project seeks to “systematize” (the word is uncomfortable and imprecise) methodologies, procedures and scripts that do not have legitimacy or recognition and are not part of the traditional sciences (hard or social). Investigating the particularities and contributions of these active practices, illegitimate for academia, the research seeks to generate a toolbox endowed with a critical instrument that can serve other artists and researchers in their work and activism.

The project contemplates the realization of at least 4 public meetings (formalized in workshops, talks or brief exhibitions) product of 4 “micro-residences of investigation”; a final public presentation of the results of the investigation; and the realization of a book that contains text and images.

Lucía Egaña has a degree in fine arts, a master in documentary and holds a Phd in audiovisual communication with a thesis on postpornography and transfeminism. She is currently part of the academic direction of MACBA Independent Studies Program, where she coordinates the line of body technologies, and until very recently has been resident in Hangar. Her artistic, pedagogical and research practice is linked to transfeminism, representation, sexuality, free software, North-South relations and error. She has published two books, Enciclopedia del amor en los tiempos del porno (Cuarto propio, 2014) and Atrincheradas en la carne, readings on post-pornographic practices (Bellaterra, 2017) and she participated in different anthologies and publications. She is the organizer of the dissident pornography festival Muestra Marrana, is part of the project M.A.M.I. (Museo Arqueológico del Machismo Inmemorial or Museo Antimachista Multi Inteligente, etc.), of the Instituto de Estudios del Porno and of the collectives, Real Archivo Sudaca and Cooperativa de Técnicas.
