“The present text, taken, in large part, from a doctoral research presented at the Faculty of Philosophy of the Complutense University of Madrid in 2007, rehearses a transplant operation: it takes the concept of hospitality, generally associated with the field of ethics, politics and of the legal, and transfers it to the field of aesthetics and, in particular, of artistic creation.

Guided by the deconstructive style of Jacques Derrida (1930-2004), he makes notes on how hospitality reacts to this transplant. This is not an abstract exercise, as it is applied to a specific case: Álvaro Siza's drawings.

It also reflects on the previous and foundational questions: will there be some form of legitimacy that supports the displacement of the landmarks that delimit the territories of knowledge? Can the aesthetic peacefully receive and bear the intrusion of a stranger into his territory?”
