Statement PSJM

PSJM is a team of creation, theory and management formed by Cynthia Viera (Las Palmas G.C., 1973) and Pablo San José (Mieres, 1969). PSJM present themselves as an «art brand», thus appropriating the procedures and strategies of advanced capitalism to subvert their symbolic structures.

The team-brand has been included among the 100 most representative artists of international political art in Art & Agenda: Political Art and Activism (Berlin: Gestalten, 2011). They have also been included in Younger than Jesus. Artist Directory. The essential handbook to the future of art (New York: Phaidon-New Museum, 2009) and Come Together: The Rise of Cooperative Art and Design (New York: Princeton Architectural Press N.Y., 2014), among others. Their work has been shown in numerous international exhibitions such as Beyond the Tropics, in the context of 56th Venice Biennale (2015), Hic et Nunc, Hirshhorn Museum, Washington D.C. (2014), One Shot!, Museu Brasileiro da Escultura, São Paulo (2014), Off Street, A Foundation, London (2009), The Real Royal Trip… by the Arts, PS1-MoMA, New York (2003, in collaboration with El Perro and Aitor Méndez), and others in Spain: Prophetia, Fundación Miró, Barcelona (2015) or PIGS, Artium, Vitoria (2016).

In the theoretical area, it is important to point out some of their latest publications: Fuego amigo. Dialéctica del arte político en el capitalismo total (CENDEAC, Murcia, 2015), Arte y procesos democráticos. Hacia una estética horizontal (TEA, Tenerife, 2017) or the article «Marcuse y el lema de la CIA» in Revista de Occidente (Madrid, 2016). Among their works of cultural management are curating, coordination and design of Arte y Participación Ciudadana (Las Palmas G.C., 2016), and the coordination and design of World is Work, curated by José María Durán (Kwadrat, Berlin, 2010). Their intense activity extends to didactics, where it is relevant their presence as guest professors at Washington State University or in the summer workshops PSJM•BerlinWorkshop at the Cervantes Institute in Berlin (2012-2015), being also the curators of the exhibitions with the installations created by the students.
