Summary note:
A central voice in queer theory and gender studies, Paul B. Preciado has also developed an extensive career as an independent curator responsible for public programs, first at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona and now for the Documenta de Kassel. The three essays gathered here, unpublished in Argentina, rescue Preciado's interventions in the field of museums, their programming and their architecture. Through the analysis of bath design, Björk's exhibitions at MoMA and the discovery of Pompeii's erotic friezes, the museum assumes its congenital relationship with pornography as a category of public space management and faces the role of Ruin that neoliberalism grants. In these essays, Preciado constructs a lucid glance at the current role of museums -actuated by a guilty past and an uncritical present- and an urgent call to account for their capacity to reinvent the democratic public sphere. This publication is the first to integrate the Posmuseo Collection of Public Programs of MALBA, which includes outstanding voices of contemporary thought. Author Paul B. Preciado (born Beatriz Preciado, Burgos,1970) is an architect, feminist philosopher and independent curator.
