What we do

The configuration of urban spaces, which determines vital rhythms and ways to experience places, is mediated through interests that privilege productivity in order to make these spaces economically profitable, following patriarchal and capitalist dictates. In this way, urban planning reduces the human dimension of life in the city to a small and vague terrain, defined by a whole range of values that are part of a feminine conception of space, one linked to care, attention to difference and personal relationships.

 

On the other hand, the patriarchal perspective also imposes its hegemonic criteria in articulating the story of the city, defining the ways in which we relate to our history and ourselves. Thus, through its streets, squares and monuments, a discourse is composed of collective identity in which the male is praised, valued by power criteria, given professional or military recognition.

In the visual field, this dominant view also establishes its own criteria to filter the images that surround us daily and from which we are transmitted codes of values that must be questioned.

Through the tours we seek to point out certain aspects that create other types of urban fabric and discourse, as well as some of the mechanisms that make it invisible.

 

Along the walk we create new readings of the urban landscape through dialogue with the participants, to discover the polyphonic dimension of urban spaces and to activate the stories hidden in their cracks.

In the tours to museums and other exhibition spaces we approach the exhibitions from a gender perspective to discover other histories, always based on the questioning of the discourses and strategies that determine what reaches the visible field and gets inscribed in the public sphere.
