Political prisoners in contemporary Spain

Santiago Sierra
Printed newspaper
A special edition of Political Prisoners. Obscured photographs printed as a broadsheet newspaper which resembles the clandestine newspapers often printed by political organisations. In an exercise of self-censorship, the captions reveal the identities of the subjects without exposing their names. The original work was removed from ARCO (an art fair held in Madrid) prior to a visit from Spanish Royalty in a bid to avoid controversy.
