A Colectiva Roundtable

Positive management models

A Colectiva – Professional Association of Galician Artists, was born with the desire to give a voice to the contemporary community of artists born in Galicia or who develop their activity in this territory. Some of our objectives are to strengthen the professional fabric, analyze the production system or generate specific knowledge for the artistic and cultural sector.

The Colectiva Roundtable of this edition will try to highlight and value favorable management models in the field of contemporary art and audiovisual, to learn about effective models and recommended practices that can be exported and adapted to our context. The professionals who participate are Mar Caldas, Irena Jelic, Ricardo Vieira and José Manuel Sande.

Interseccion - Mar Caldas

Mar Caldas

In her artistic projects, the use of photography, text and video stands out, incorporating performative and procedural resources.


Interested in the politics of representation and the viewer’s gaze, she has dealt with issues such as subjectivity, relations of domination between genders and between cultures, the value of micro-history, the breaking of sexual roles or the deactivation of voyeurism.


She has combined artistic practice with theoretical work that has led to conferences, essays, articles and curatorships, whose publications are partially collected in Academia.edu.
