Memory Works

Marcelo Brodsky

from May 8, 2018 to June 23, 2018

In this exhibition the artist recovers different memories: on the one hand, those from Argentina. Marcelo Brodsky (Argentina, 1954) suffered the disappearance of his brother by the hands of the dictatorship. Numerous people went missing, and this artist's work speaks on their behalf. 
He also puts the spotlight on the Spanish dictatorship. Following his line of work 1968: EL fuego de las ideas, the artist recovers forgotten pictures, in this case from the spanish dictatorship and intervenes them.
Memory works connects part of the artist's former work El puente de la memoria with new works created exclusively for this exhibition.

Brodsky works in order to bring grey pictures back to life and make the more real. With his work, he brings the expectator back to the time when they were taken. Demostrations led by those who, not long ago, saw the future clearly and considered every subversion act as the awakening of society.
