David Lanau is interested in researching on hybrid roles and strategies in the field of art +
education for pedagogical innovation and social transformation, as well as being specialised in
addressing issues of gender identity and affective-sexual orientation in education, using art as
learning strategy. David holds a degree in Humanities, and is a founding partner of Pedagogías
Invisibles (Invisible Pedagogies) where he develops programs of cultural mediation, accessibility
and research. He coordinates the Education Group at Matadero Madrid Centre, and teaches
Contemporary Art at the Universidad de Mayores Comillas. He has worked in cultural institutions
such as the Juan March Foundation and the Cervantes Institute, as well as in contemporary art
spaces such as Sala Alcalá 31 or Tabacalera Promoción del Arte. He is the co-author with Andrea
De Pascual of the book ‘Art is a way of doing (not a thing that is done)’.

 


Jordi Ferreiro is an artist and educator from Barcelona, Spain, whose projects use strategies
based on institutional mediation, performative participation, play and experimental education
movements, to interfere in the relations between institutions, art and audiences, aimed at creating
new strategies. These projects may be used in a macro scale outside the art world, and include
interactive tours, collaborative workshops, performative conferences and listening experiments.
They are conceived to generate collaborative and horizontal situations in the usual hierarchical
structures in which we can find ourselves.

 

Ana Folguera is an art critic, educator and researcher. Her career is particularly focused in the

coordinator of EXIT Imagen & Cultura and is part of AMECUM (Madrid Cultural Mediators
Association). She has worked as a mediator in institutions such as the Mapfre Foundation or the
Reina Sofía Museum, and has developed the mediation program, as well as the educational

clearance of spaces in Centro Centro Cibeles’ (Madrid).
