Daniel Malpica is a Finnish-Mexican writer, graphic designer, publisher and multimedia artist. His work involves the exploration of cross-narratives, transmediality, design and literary arts. As an artist and curator, Malpica has developed multiple transdisciplinary literary projects across Europe, the Nordics, and Mexico. Malpica was editor and designer of Radiador Magazine and, between 2019-2022, a member of the board of directors of the Finnish PEN.
His most recent books, ‘Se escribe con X’ and ‘Manuke Libre’, have received support from the Finnish Arts Council (TAIKE) and the Kone Foundation.
For this interview series, “The Ecology of Artistic Research”, we meet at Suomenlinna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located a 15-minute ferry ride away from the centre of Helsinki, Finland, where Malpica is currently one of the artists in residence of HIAP (Helsinki International Artists Programme).
