Project

How can you create a novel that defies hegemonic structures and adopts the ideal form to represent the present? What are the languages that must appear in it? What novels exist that, with their formal proposal, have been able to represent the problems and conflicts of a plural, contradictory society that lives in a period of permanent crisis?

With this project I want to create a hybrid novel, the result of a process of research and investigation in various fields that also involves a process of writing in a broad sense in order to create a new artistic device that allows us to think about the present in a different way.
