Maria Ptqk (b. Bilbao, 1976) likes to ask questions (and to question herself). In fact, her work revolves around the use of questions as a critical and speculative tool. With a PhD in Artistic Research and a background in Law and Economics, Maria Ptqk has spent the last two decades operating in the cultural sector through different frequencies and channels: her practice mutates with equal passion and rigor from writing to scientific-philosophical dissemination, curating (physical and digital exhibitions), publishing, organising workshops... all kinds of “weird formats”. An inter- and trans-disciplinary career that finds expression in the collective zones of friction in which art, technoscience, ecofeminism, and social communication rub shoulders.

In this podcast, we talk to Maria Ptqk about the possible methodological alliances between art and science. We check out her recent years of research, which have crystalised in the exhibition Science Friction. Life among companion species and in other embodiments and projects. We look at the narrative dimension of scientific knowledge, via Donna Haraway, and at the symbiotic relationships between interdependent organisms through the work of Lynn Margulis. We rethink the complex boundaries between the cultural and natural spheres, and we also embrace the monstrous, in order to call for a multispecies paradigm that overturns human supremacy and takes on a political form in actions such the movements for the Rights of Nature, inspired by indigenous cosmovisions.
