A TRAVELLING EXHIBITION ON THE SYMBOLIC REPRESSION
This exhibition is a work in progress developed by the EUROM and the project Public Art and Memory of the University of Barcelona in collaboration with local and regional governments, memory institutions and research groups.
Displayed inside a big wood container, the installation temporarily returns the symbols of the Francoist dictatorship to the public space, revealing them as something alien to a democratic society.
Starting in 2019, the project has been made possible thanks to the City Council of Barcelona, the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities of Spain, and the Europe for Citizens Programme of the European Union.
The exhibition adapts local research and contents, promoting reflexion on the main symbols of the repression of Francoism. It includes an interactive map, pictures and original elements to allow the interpretation of our past.
The exhibition is available for itinerancy and part of the contents is already produced. Although, local research and coordination is needed to include specific content, as well as to adapt the interactive map.
The new content will be developed and organized in collaboration with the local partners of the project. It may include pictures, objects and texts.
From one to four months from the hiring, according to the specific dimension of the local research to be developed. The contents will be displayed and subsequently published for the purpose of research and dissemination.
Two containers are available for itinerancy.
