Info

Fernando Sánchez Castillo (Madrid, 1970) A graduate of the Complutense University of Madrid, he received a Master’s degree in Philosophy from the Institute of Contemporary Aesthetics of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. he was a member of the ENSBA research group in Paris and a resident at the Rijksakademie in Masterdam. He has tried to keep distance from Spain and its contemporary history since the beginning of his career, even if it becomes repeated material in many of his interventions. He does not consider this contemporary art practice to be culture, but rather cultural critique, as Jan Hoet asserts. His practices have links to historiography, journalism an the ambiguos relations between power and its propaganda. His notable collective exhibitions include: Abracadabra, Tate Modern, London; Fundación Montenmedio Arte Contemporáneo, MNAC, Cádiz; Bad Boys, 50 Biennale di Venezia; The Real Royal Trip, P.S.1, MoMA, Nueva York; XXVI Bienal Internacional de Sao Pablo. His individual exhibits include: Abajo la inteligencia, MUSAC, León; Space of Resistance: Peace to the Man of Bad Will. Skissernas Museum, Lund, Sweden.
