* We are now working on the publication of the dialogues held in Mexico City between Judith Butler and Leticia Sabsay, Amelia Jones and Ma. Amelia Viteri, and between Dean Spade and Eli Vásquez.



Mesas de diálogo creates a space of dialogue and discussion where, from a postcolonial context, the main Anglo North American theories that have defined how we understand subjectivation and its relation with visual culture, contemporary art, and social theory are problematized.
