PSJM is an artist duo formed by Cynthia Viera (*1973 Las Palmas/ES) and Pablo San José (*1969 Mieres/ES). They present themselves as an “art brand”, thus appropriating the procedures and strategies of advanced capitalism to subvert their symbolic structures.
The brand-team has been included among the 100 most representative artists of International Political Art in “Art & Agenda: Political Art and Activism”, (Berlin: Gestalten, 2011). They have been included too in “Younger than Jesus. Artist Directory. The essential handbook to the future of art” (New York: Phaidon-New Museum, 2009) and “Come Together: The Rise of Cooperative Art and Design” (New York: Princeton Architectural Press N.Y., 2012).
The works of PSJM have been shown in numerous international exhibitions such as Beyond the Tropics, in the context of 56th Venice Biennale (2015), Hic et Nunc, Hirshhorn Museum, Washington D.C. (2014), One Shot!, Museu Brasileiro da Escultura, São Paulo (2014), Off Street, A Foundation, London (2009), The Real Royal Trip… by the Arts, PS1-MOMA, New York (2003, in collaboration with El Perro y Aitor Méndez), and others in Spain: Prophetia, Fundación Miró, Barcelona (2015) or PIGS, Artium, Vitoria (2016).
In the theoretical area, some of their latest publications should be noted : Fuego amigo. Dialéctica del arte político en el capitalismo total (CENDEAC, Murcia, 2015), or the article «Marcuse y el lema de la CIA» in the Revista de Occidente (Madrid, 2016). Among their works of cultural management are curatorial, coordination and image work of: Arte y Participación Ciudadana (Las Palmas G.C., 2016) or the coordination and image of World is Work, curated by José María Durán (Kwadrat, Berlín, 2010). Their intense activities extend to didactic works, where their presence as Visiting Professors at Washington State University (2017) or their PSJM•BerlinWorkshops at the Instituto Cervantes in Berlin (2012-2015) stand out.
