Gloria López Cleries researches and writes about art and technology. She holds a Master in Contemporary Art History and Visual Culture, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS) and Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) and a Master in Fine Arts, HDK-Valand, Gothenburg University, Sweden.

Her work critically examines questions about neoliberal rhetoric concerning emotional capitalism and new online models of productivity, affect, care and collectivity. Her projects invite us to question and rethink the vocabularies and imageries of online social networks and their reproduction. Her last artistic projects explore the connections between technomysticism and spiritual discourses of matter.

In parallel to her artistic production, López is a lecturer at HDK-Valand, Gothenburg University. Interested in feminist and critical pedagogies, López has participated and co-led critical pedagogy research programmes and collective research workshops.
