Colectivo Subtramas

Subtramas is a collective formed in 2009 by Diego del Pozo, Montse Romaní, and Virginia Villaplana dedicated to artistic research and production. Subtramas explores diverse crossings between audiovisual, visual arts and social activism, involved in the field of radical feminist queer pedagogy, popular education, and participatory research. 

Subtramas obtained the "ConCA-Consell de les Arts de Catalunya" research grant (2009) and the "Estancias de Investigación" grant at Museo Reina Sofía (2011-2012). Of particular note is his participation in the group exhibition "Un saber realmente útil" (Museo Reina Sofía, 29 October 2014 - 9 February 2015) curated by the collective WHW (What, How & for Whom) with the project "Cuatro preguntas para una utilidad que está por venir", an art installation and an extensive program of public actions and artistic itineraries based on modes of performative mediation. 

Subtramas has conducted workshops, courses, and seminars in cultural and academic institutions and self-managed spaces, nationally and internationally.
