How do we construct relevant discourses for an inclusive and transformative culture from artistic practices and critical theory? The essays in the Matadero Critical Studies series, the reflections on interdisciplinary artistic practices and the Matadero Madrid exhibition catalogues seek to help extend the research carried out by the centre and by the creators and their collaborators who gather here.
