In this recent collection, it has been tried to reread historical images with an explicit
irony, by concentrating on photos and historical documents and based on narrations
and recorded photos.

About

In some cases, this irony has complaining aspects, therefore it approaches the stems of graf!ti art and in some others it tends to have a destructive or caricatural aspect which adds something different to the way the image is narrated. As a consequence, the image is challenged and a new interpretation is created out of it.
Yet, these images, narrations and historical characters may appear in form of reliefs on historical walls or may be attacked, destructed or satirized in form of an historical 
album.
