Paul B. Preciado is Head of Research, and Director of the Independent Studies Program (PEI) at MACBA (Barcelona), and Visiting Professor at New York University and Princeton University.

This spring The Cooper Union School of Art presents a series of lectures reflecting a broad range of contemporary art issues. Speakers include artists, writers, and thinkers currently engaged in a variety of practices. The emphasis is on interdisciplinary approaches, presenting new voices, international perspectives and scholarship across multiple fields. The series constitutes a lively forum for the exchange of ideas between practitioners, students, faculty and the public.
The Spring 2015 IDL series is part of the Robert Lehman Visiting Artist Program.
