New Media Artist Enrique Agudo as guest speaker in the IE Arts & Humanities Division elective course ¨Contemporary Issues through Art¨

September 27th, 2022

Yesterday, new media artist Enrique Agudo paid a visit to the IE Arts & Humanities Division elective course Contemporary Issues through Art taught by Claudia Rodríguez-Ponga for a discussion on queer theory.

Enrique Agudo explained his VR short film The Pantheon of Queer Mythology that had its virtual premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival 2020.  He explained the thought-processes behind his works which utilize mythology and avatars to reflect upon and challenge gender binary thought and power relations that exist in society and are embedded in technology.
