SOMA is a non-profit organization conceived to nurture discussion and exchange in the field of contemporary art and education in Mexico City. SOMA’s mission is to provide a forum for dialogue between Mexican and international artists, cultural producers, and the public at large. Through various programs we build platforms to collectively investigate what art can become and how it can function in different contexts. SOMA is a space for reconsideration and reflection, where students and participants have the opportunity to critically analyze their proposals, and where revisiting creative processes is encouraged. SOMA maintains an independent status from other cultural institutions, allowing for flexibility with regard to subject matter and event format.

SOMA Summer 2017 will focus on notions of authority as they pertain to artistic encounters in a world that seems to have an increasingly difficult time embracing difference. In seminars, we will analyse the alterity of the queer body and the new order that it established, the performing strategies of artists through self-authorization and legal fictions, as well as the relevance of the term “authority” in political science.
