Memoria Perdida at the Castle of Montjuïc, Barcelona
The Castle of Montjuïc in Barcelona will exhibit my series Memoria Perdida from 10 May 2018 to 11 September 2018.
The castle, a former prison and execution site during the Spanish Civil War and postwar, is an impressing location to show the work. Memoria Perdida (Spain's Lost Memory 1936-1975) comprises photographs of atrocity sites and sites of mass graves that have not been opened or commemorated yet. To this day the bodies of up to 114,000 ‘disappeared’ from the Spanish Civil War and the dictatorship of Francisco Franco lie in unmarked mass graves in roadsides, on the edges of towns and villages, in ravines or in fields.
