At Ruta de autor, we create and operate various routes and activities.
We inspire conversations around different ways of traversing cities and places.
We ask questions about the places we walk through.
We observe and inhabit.
Ruta de autor relies on various disciplines to create its activities:
art, history, literature, photography, poetry, music... and even the experience of travel itself. Our main themes are: urban transformation and human landscapes, cities
and decolonialism, migrations and displacement, ports and frontiers,
sexual dissidence, nature and history.
Ruta de autor is us. We are a couple and various accomplices. We are polyphony and travel. We are curious, writers, researchers, editors, critics, observers...
We are always on the move and we invite you to walk, traverse spaces, abandon clichés and share experiences, routes, instants and memories.
Each route generates its own collection of visual, textual and sound materials. This archive is composed
of the texts and publications —such as fanzines or guides— that we’ve produced for different routes,
and it also collects videos and news clippings of our work in Barcelona, Madrid and Venezuela.
Generating our own materials is a way to distance ourselves from repetition or clichés and transform spaces,
histories, bodies... in order to encourage new points of view and mobilizing experiences. In this repository,
you will find the performative and conceptual practices we’ve developed in our routes,
as well as various approaches to our work.
