Skills and Background

After studying Fine Arts at the University of Salamanca, I obtained a Pedagogical Aptitude Certificate from the University of Valladolid to teach Art in secondary schools and did an internship at IES Delicias teaching scuplture.

I became interested in public art interventions and participatory projects during my Erasmus exchange at the Kunsthochschule Kassel and decided to study the MFA Art in Public Space and New Artistic Strategies in Weimar. In Berlin I reunited with three colleagues from the MFA and we worked together on participatory and site-specific interventions as Process Institute. Here you can see some of the projects we did together.

filmArche, the self-organized film school where I studied Documentary Direction in Berlin, is a school where on top of learning about film-making, one also learns and practices how to teach one another and cooperate on a regular basis. During this time I also worked as a global learning tutor for Engagement Global GmbH., guiding the self-reflection processes of groups of young adults learning about anti-racism, colonialism and feminism.

For the last 10 years I have given talks, lectures and facilitated workshops on film-making, art and photography in different educational contexts, and Since 2018 I teach documentary film-making at the filmArche as external staff, guide documentary students through the development of their projects, and give workshops on self-organization and non-violent communication.
