Antena is a language justice and literary experimentation collaborative founded in 2010 by Jen Hofer and John Pluecker. Antena has exhibited, published, performed, organized, advocated, translated, curated, interpreted, and/or instigated with numerous groups and institutions, in cities such as Bogotá, Los Angeles, Houston, Miami, and Tijuana. Antena publishes bilingual chapbooks and pamphlets through our Libros Antena Books imprint, and collaborates with Ugly Duckling Presse on the Señal Series of Latin American literature in translation. Antena works in conjunction with two sister collectives dedicated to language justice advocacy and organizing, Antena Houston and Antena Los Ángeles, which work with individuals and groups to develop bilingual and multilingual spaces where everyone present can communicate in the language(s) in which they feel most comfortable.
