How can we address the Spanish (and Catalan) colonial legacy in Africa? Who was Snowflake? What was an Equatoguinean gorilla doing in Barcelona? What other connections are there between the Catalan capital and the African country? What are you saying? Guinea Bissau and Guinea Conakry aren’t the same country? What is the relationship between a thermonuclear bomb and the Spanish colonies? Are you calling me genocidal? Are you calling me a conqueror? How can the Spanish flag not be placed on Spanish buildings?
Visit Stand 68: Equatorial Guinea, “Working for you from the heart of Africa!”
PQP is a company formed by Jaume Forés Juliana and Laura Riera that investigates how the hidden aspects of the past shape our personal and collective identity. Their first show, Encara, Pere Quart, focused on those uncomfortable figures within the cultural panorama that survive outside the hegemonic discourses and that are erased over the years. The proposal toured for three years at various cultural venues in Catalonia. Stand 68: Equatorial Guinea, their second project, is interested in the relations that we as a society establish with our colonial heritage. It has received the OSIC Research Grant and has been in residence at Fàbrica de Creació Fabra i Coats and Círcol de Badalona.
