Alemanen kanposantue

We have received a project grant from the Mondriaan Fonds to continue our work on the reproduction of a Nazi memorial that lay forgotten and neglected by the side of a road in Basque Country.

The grant allows us to travel to the Basque Country and map the territory on which we found the monument: the front-line from the Spanish Civil War that separated the plains of Alava from the mountain range to the north. Azala Kreazio Espazioa has kindly offered us a residency in one of their studios, from which we will carry out our expeditions into the mountains.

Taking old military positions as vantage point, we will create a series of drawings, photos and video of this "guilty landscape", and link the violent geological processes that shaped it with the histories of human conflict it provided a stage for.

More information forthcoming...
