In order to create a world favourable to themselves, the representatives of power stimulate the public by means of visual marketing techniques. They configure ‘seeing’ through political hegemony, institutional execution, urban advertising, and the use of mass media; agents infiltrating our homes. We find ourselves submerged in a technological era where we absorb and re-project images like signal repeaters. The photographs and videos that we consume and create make us a part of the regime. We are witnesses to and extras in the image of our time. While C.E.N.S.U.R.A. is a visual variation across the Spanish political landscape, Tauromaquia explores the mechanisms of social control in motion, whereby authoritarianism is legitimised by use of police demonstration. The third and related work, Los últimos días vistos del rey, is a description of the political caste that, with almost unchanging rituals, has dominated Spain for the last forty years.
