Los Torreznos participate in the collective exhibition Province 53. Art, territory and decolonization of the Sahara, curated by Juan Guardiola. The exhibition brings together more than 50 national and international artists and collectives through more than 100 objects, texts, documents, archive material and contemporary artistic projects. While the works vary greatly both formally and conceptually, one will notice certain issues coming up repeatedly such as collective memory from a rich oral narrative recorded in sound documents; the exploitation of Sahrawi natural resources (phosphates, minerals and fish stock); the division of territory through the so-called "wall of shame" (which is surrounded by minefields); or, the topic of freedom of expression and the stripping of prisoners’ and missing persons’ of their human rights. The exhibition will be on view from September 16th, 2017 to February 4th, 2018.
