Project —

At Faber I’m going to work on the project Circular Portraits, by SomAtents, which we have already begun in Besòs and Les Corts districts, with the aim of developing a comprehensive proposal for all Barcelona and in this way to create synergies between young boys and girls that take photos and reflect on media stereotypes of its neighborhoods. In addition, I will try to rethink the exhibition of Amalia Jail to adapt to a big format, as well as consider future activities related to the recovery of the historical memory of Raval.
