Maria Ruido is an artist, filmmaker and researcher who has been working on interdisciplinary media projects since 1998. In her work she has developed an investigation on the imaginaries of labour in postfordist capitalism, as well as on the mechanisms that construct memory and its relations to the different historical narratives. She currently focuses on post-colonial imaginary and its emancipatory possibilities.
