The Museo’s Study Centre organises two public sessions based on the first edition of Connective Tissue, the Museo Reina Sofía’s Programme of Critical Museology, Artistic Research Practices and Cultural Studies. During the encounter, the team of mobilisers — researchers who drive forward and coordinate, from their different fields, the Programme’s different Seminars and Critical Nodes — share the works developed up to this point and reflect on their predictions. Equally, the group of Resident Student Researchers present their work on posters and in installations and talks with people interested.
The aim of the activity is to share knowledge, learning and projects carried out to date in the different Seminars and Critical Nodes, fibres of a shared research fabric which looks to be projected towards different outlying social, academic and cultural places.
