Virginia Villaplana‘s artistic practice expands into critical theory, editorial work, curatorship and teaching, with a focus on the political. She conducts and studies socially engaged media practices that contribute to political change and individual and community growth, and investigates transnational relations under the impact of digital memory of queer people, as well as resources and information around the issues of social exclusion, such as those with regard to sex work, prison and borders. Her work explores writing as a negotiation between memory, narratives of fiction and documentaries, as well as strategies from Do-It-Yourself to Do-It-Together.
Points of Support. Zones of Resistance is the last filmed document on Remedios Montero (Celia) and Florian García (El Grande) before their deaths – it is the oral testimony of resistance of the Agrupación Guerillera del Levante y Aragón (A.G.L.A) during Spanish Civil War. It forms part of a transdisciplinary project El Instante de la memoria, result of a long and complex process of investigation into francoist repression and later the official version of transition, which left open wounds and imposed the logic of oblivion in present-day Spain.
