Concept

August 2013. The situation asks for a deep analisys and get a broad view. Europe a liying project that hides selfish and fake targets. Human contradictions with the aspect of a economic monster. Doubled places and doubled personalities. Doubled images and doubled perceptions of imperatives that come from power elites. Two opposites that fight to breath, without showing hate. Power vs life. Heritage vs freedom. Two pieces, two Europes, two cities, one european diptych and one sincere shout: “We don’t want to be like you!”.

North european citizens are asked to adopt mediterranean way of life. To obtain that the #1 piece is pasted at the streets of Berlin.

Mediterranean citizens are asked to adopt a north european way of life. To obtain that the #2 piece is pasted at the streets of Madrid.
