- The University of Barcelona exhibits the mural in remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust, performed by Roc Blackblock and 12 students of the artistic baccalaureate of the Institute Moisès Broggi on the occasion of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day in Barcelona;
- The two canvas are displayed at the Pati Aribau of the historic building of the University from March 05 to 22, 2018;
- The project aims to transmit the memory of the Holocaust to the new generations.
The graffiti is inspired by the graphic novel Maus, by Art Spiegelman. It was conceived from a mix of iconic, artistic, documentary and evocative elements that recall the multiplicity of the victims of Nazi genocide. The project focuses on the shared responsibility and importance of education on genocide to promote the refusal to all ways of discrimination, violence, and anti-Semitism. It was directed by Jordi Guixé (EUROM) and commissioned by Núria Ricart (Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Barcelona).
Developed at Plaça del Rei from January 23 to 25, the mural was first presented at the Chapell of Saint Agatha of the Museum of History of Barcelona (MUHBA) from January 27 to February 11, 2018.
