La Liminal

La Liminal is a cultural mediation collective founded in 2015 by Beatriz Martins and Yolanda Riquelme – art historians with a background in social anthropology and artistic production. They organise critical urban walks and tours in cultural institutions, analysing their official discourses from a gender perspective. Their activities have been developed in different Madrid districts and at institutions such as Reina Sofia Museum. They have collaborated with other collectives, such as Cumpleaños en el bloque, and the architecture studio for urban transformation, Improvistos.
Their projects have been part of art festivals and architecture and urbanism encounters. They have participated in research projects like Login_Madrid (Intermediae Matadero) and Canícula (Amadís Injuve gallery). They have also taken part in international congresses such as “Contested cities”, organised by the Autonomous University of Madrid, and “Art & Cultural Mediation for Diversity”, as well as “Divercity: Diving into diversity into museums and in the city”, which is organised by the Complutense University of Madrid.
