Pedro Cortés

Architect, CG Artist and Fiction maker. Domestic policy in conflict.

Architect by the University of Valladolid and MArch by Polytechnic University of Madrid, my research focuses on the study of the spaces of political representation in the city and the mechanisms used by Western governments to generate a fictional framework of political consensus that seeks to limit the possibilities of diversity in the public space of our cities.

Through the use of space fictions, it is tried to reverse this situation, showing parts of the real that are hidden within that space of representation, recovering the capacity that all political actors have in the modification and (re) generation of space.

Thus. fiction is understood as events that are based on reality, and because of that they always start off with the known, but transforming it so that it is able to show the breadth of possibilities of use of domestic and urban space.
