Artist's Description

Who ever came to some place (most probably Barcelona) in Catalunya and never noticed these stickers sticked all over the place, or even didn’t see this flag, can only be extremely disracted!

This sticker is part of the many propaganda messages that the independentists political movements/parties make all over this region. The main message of the sticker is: “Independence and socialism” and it is not writen in Spanish but in their local language: Catalan.

The reason why I chosen to shoot a wrecked sticker is because though the independist movement was never so active and big as now, the independist cause was never so hard to achieve it’s goal as nowadays. Their biggest problem is that Catalunya has become too much important to Spain to let go. After Franco’s dictactureship, Catalunya has become one of the most important clusters of Spain at all levels: Economic, Financial, Industrial, Cultural, etc…

In numbers, this territory reprsents 16% of all Spanish population, about GDP US$314.4 billion/year (the highest in all Spain), and per capita GDP was €30,700 – similar to that of countries like UK or Austria.

Now that they are so strong, I feel curious to see how are the independentists going to pull this one…
