Also known as El Barroquista on social networks, from where he maintains intense cultural communication, Cajigal has poured his disseminating and didactic passion into writing books to make the discipline of art historiography more accessible. In his essay Otra historia del arte. No pasa nada si no te gustan Las Meninas, it frees us from prejudices and gives arguments to a non-specialized general public to enjoy freely. In his talk, he will tell us about his other publications in which he also deals with architecture as Otra historia de la arquitecturaPor qué tu casa es mejor que Versalles.

Miguel Ángel Cajigal will also recommend reading titles that have been fundamental for him and that have been decisive in the gender perspective from art, such as Situar en la Historia. Women, Art and Society by Linda Nochlin and y Heroínas del espacio. Mujeres arquitectos en el movimiento moderno by Carmen Espegel, among others.
