Rubén H. Bermúdez. Visual artist. Author of Y tú, ¿por qué eres negro? (2017) and Director of the film A todos nos gusta el plátano (2021). His work has been exhibited in cultural spaces like the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía and Rencontres de Bamako. Co-founder of Conciencia Afro collective.
Conciencia Afro was founded in the context of the Festival Afroconciencia 2016, as a group for collective thinking and action with the mission to raise consciousness within the Afro-descendant community in Spain about the need to reclaim participation in political and cultural institutions. From this position, they support independence, creativity, and the promotion of cultural and social entrepreneurs from the community.
This series is produced by the Fundación Rey Juan Carlos of New York University with support from the King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center, the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the Hemispheric Institute, the Center for the Humanities, and the Center for the Study of Africa and the African Diaspora at NYU as well as NYU Madrid.
