Presentation

We are an artistic organization interested in promoting research and hybridization of disciplines and knowledge in the field of contemporary art. Through residency programs, publications and public activities, we want to promote spaces for affective and intellectual exchange between agents of different origins.

From a transfeminist and decolonial perspective, we summon people who seek to subvert power relations, hierarchies and Eurocentric models of doing, thinking, narrating and teaching the cultural phenomena of our time.

FelipaManuela carries out part of its activity in a domestic space located on the Paseo de las Delicias in Madrid. But its actions also extend to digital and publishing platforms. Annually, it publishes a book that gathers perspectives and reflections from some of the people who have been part of the space activities.
