The Institute for Postnatural Studies is a center for artistic experimentation aimed at exploring and problematizing postnature as a framework for contemporary creation. Founded in 2020, it is conceived as a platform for critical thinking—a network that brings together artists and researchers concerned about the issues of the global ecological crisis through experimental formats of exchange and the production of open knowledge. From a multidisciplinary approach, the Institute develops long-term research focused on issues such as ecology, coexistence, politics, and territories. These lines of investigation take various shapes and formats, including seminars, exhibitions, and residencies, serving as spaces for academic and artistic experimentation.
The Institute for Postnatural Studies works at the intersection of Spain and international practices and debates. From its headquarters in Madrid, a 300m² warehouse with a workshop, residency spaces, and shared workspaces, it invites artists, researchers, and cultural agents to engage in dialogues with alumni and the broader public.
In parallel, the Institute has created the publishing platform Cthulhu Books.
