He has participated in numerous publications and international academic meetings on queer and camp aesthetics, architecture, queer ethnographies, affect theory and the intersection of artistic practices with biopolitical criticism. He curated Desiring Architecture as part of the International Festival of Desiring Architectures, delving into themes of flamenco/Gypsy culture and issues of queer ecology. In addition, he has curated exhibitions featuring artists such as Fernando Bayona, Victoria Maldonado, Regina de Miguel and Florencia Rojas, among others.
