Deconstructing Francoism (Santiago de Compostela)

Deconstructing Francoism (Santiago de Compostela)


The traveling exhibition Deconstructing Francoism is presented in Santiagode Compostela as a space for reflection on the symbology of the ladictadura. The sample is presented in five stages, from the PERSISTENCE of Francoism to the ABSENCES of memory. The journey reveals the veils of the retired but recoverable Francoism, the AMNESIAS draw a true cartography of terror and the designated EXPROPIATIONS of places and symbols.

The exhibition includes photographic pre-productions of spaces and symbolism that persist or were forgotten by the citizens of Santiago de Compostela and an interactive cartography that brings to the public space the places of death and burial in Galicia during the civil war.
