Salvador Dalí
Performativity, the public image.

Interviews about Dalí and with Dalí, confronting the actual times with the Construction of the media figure by the artist.

From the central part of the Pavilion it is possible to walk directly to the Three artistic Projects by Cabello/Carceller, Francesc Ruiz and Pepo Salazar

No-Do was the film propaganda tool by Franco´s regime in Spain. Dalí was an object at No-Do ,but he was also perverting the forms of what was possible to do or say in it.

Some documentation connects Dalí with Cabello/Carceller, Francesc Ruiz and Pepo Salazar.
The figure of Dalí appears not just as an historic presence but as someone to observe from today.

Pepo Salazar
Multiple layers, desire, industrial culture, structural language.

Cheetos, metal, sound, videos... the amount of material at Pepo Salazar's installation is moving from popular Culture to industrial behaviour.


Cabello/Carceller work deals with gender, politics and art. Four characters talk about the situation in Europe today and the possibilities and impossibilities to be outside the norm.

Francesc Ruiz
The World as a newsstand. Information and reality.

Francesc Ruiz understands the newsstands as a pre-internet idea. Information is there in multiple layers.

The two newsstands from Francesc Ruiz observe media in Italy. From general media to specific publications.
