Miguel Benlloch is a performancer-actioner. Anti-Franco and Anti-Otan activist, he contributed to the preparation of the homosexual liberation movement in the Spanish State on the late seventies. Since 1988 he works alongside Joaquín Vázquez and Alicia Pinteño in the cultural producer BNV Productions, Sevilla. In November 2013 he published “Acaeció en Granada” (Ciengramos Publisher), a book that reviews with texts and images his professional and vital career.
Aimar Arriola works from the art. They both met in 2008 as object of study and researcher, respectively. Their relationship continues at present from a more immediate dimension of work and affection. In this context, Aimar is interested in talking with Miguel about aspects of his practice from the position of the micro-politics of style.
