Blanca Pujals is an architect, spatial researcher and critical writer. Her cross-disciplinary practice is based on spatial research and critical analysis to engage with questions of contemporary culture, philosophy of science and transnational politics, developing tools forunder taking analysis through different visual and sonic devices. She approaches geographies of power on bodies and territories and the material conditions of regimes of representation. Her work encompasses film, architecture, lecturing, curatorial projects, teaching and critical writing. She got her BA in Architecture at Barcelona School of Architecture. She completed her studies with a MA in Critical Theory and Museum Studies at the Independent Studies Program of MACBA Museum, tutored by the philosopher Paul B. Preciado. She was recently a postgraduate at the Centre for Research Architecture (Visual Cultures Department) at Goldsmiths University of London, directed by Susan Schuppli and Eyal Weizman. She is currently developing her practice-led PhD in Arts and Sciences 'A Synthetic Universe. The Unmaking bonds of Transnational Space', about the geopolitics and spatial articulations of the fundamental sciences infrastructures. The project proposes an artistic reading of these new architectures for containing and artificially reproducing the fundamental laws of nature while questioning how they amplify political and new material interactions.
