Gag Law I

(Spanish State 2011-2018), 2015.

This artistic action was a first symbolic response by the artist to the imminent approval of the so-called 'Organic Law for the Protection of Citizen Security' by a conservative and authoritarian government that Spain suffered between 2011 and 2018.
This Law would undermine the fundamental right that citizens had to free expression, assembly and demonstration. A Law that would take Spanish society back to times of Franco's dictatorship.

This Law was passed in March 2015 and came into force in July of that same year.

Thanks to the disinterested transfer of the cries of a group of anonymous people, the artist was able to perform this urban action that took place on December 19, 2014 in the city of Madrid.
