Video-intervention 18

Name: Artistic solidarity
Situation: Supporting colleagues: Santiago Cirugeda’s video was downloaded from Internet and we projected on his piece, then we tried to project Jota Castro’s “Incas’ moneybox” on the facade of the Spanish Bank. This piece wants to reimburse the gold that was stolen to the Incas and has been retired because it was vandalized. Unfortunately, and for technical reasons that I ignore we couldn’t project it, and we couldn’t demand the money. It seems like they don’t want to give it back.
Place: Paseo de Recoletos and Banco de España.
