Decconstrucing Francoism. Symbols of the dictatorship in Barcelona
The EUROM and the project Public Art and Memory of the University of Barcelona jointly coordinate a travelling exhibition with the aim of interpreting the symbolic repression of Francoism. The exposed material highlights more than 160 official housing plaques of Francoism that have been recently withdrawn by the city of Barcelona. Interactive cartography allows visitors to locate most of the plaques, as well as some of the most representative sites of repression and control, monuments and street names of the Francoist dictatorship. The exhibition was conceived by Jordi Guixé and Núria Ricart with the support of the project Public Art and Memory (HAR2017-84322-P), the City Council of Barcelona and the programme Europe for Citizens of the European Commission.
