About

Some women have "always" been lesbians. Others, like myself, have "become" one. As much a sociocultural construction as it is an effect of early childhood experiences, sexual identity is neither innate nor simply acquired, but dynamically (re)structured by forms of fantasy private and public, conscious and unconscious, which are culturally available and historically specific.

VenidaDevenida is an art and architecture team formed in 2014 by Ana Olmedo and Elena Águila.

Their practice focuses on analysing the hegemonic discourse from a critical and feminist point of view. They generate sweet activisms through everyday objects and references in popular culture, aiming to empower the minority subcultures.

Their work has been exhibited at CO.Exhibition, organized during the I International Conference in Architectural Communication 2017: MediActions in Madrid and at A Fine Line: Scenarios for Bordering Conditions during the I International Architecture Biennial in San Sebastian. In 2016, they received the Injuve Design Grant for the development of the project Fem·Insurgentes.
