bio | Elisa Fuenzalida is a researcher and writer who coordinates the decolonial Anibal Quijano Chair in Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia. As Hija de Puto, Fuenzalida was part of Pornolab collective in Madrid, a platform that investigated and discussed audiovisual, literary and theoretical materials that have been produced from or to the field of pornography, with the manifest objective of questioning the mainstream narratives. In this frame, she co-founded the festival La Revuelta Obscena, in which she participated both as a curator of the presentations and workshops and as a performer. She also co-founded the publisher house Papel de Fumar Ediciones, later granted with the Miguel Hernández Poetry National Book Award. Her writing, artistic and researching practice is anchored in the intersections and bridges between body, community, care, gender and migration. Currently, Elisa Fuenzalida is a researcher in residence for the Rethinking the 90`s- Our Many Europes grant in the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía with the project The flowers smell, the others hurt: bodies, mourning and community where she analyzes vulnerability in the context of the many collapses of the nineties in Latinamerica as a possible enabler of ethics of interdependence, from the experiences and memories of trans/ travesti women, with special focus on the religious Cofradía de la Virgen de la Puerta.
