SPAIN: Still Cause is a visual art project which I began in 2010 focused on the struggle for justice and recognition which is ongoing in Spain post Franco. It has so far comprised of an exhibition, small publication, a living memorial, talks, and this blog.
I am now working on a film which will feature first-hand testimonies from people directly affected by the Franco dictatorship.
The project was inspired by the photojournalist Gerda Taro and her work during the Spanish Civil War.
Remaking Picasso's Guernica
"We all share a commitment to the uses of art in challenging perceptions,
so that we can begin to see things in new ways, waking up lazy ways of
seeing, making us aware of habits and of our tendency to stereotype,
unpacking texts so as to reveal new meanings."
