This interactive installation emerges as a visual response to Bartomeu Marí’s decision to cancel the exhibition “The Beast and the Sovereign” at MACBA having considered inappropiate the work “Not dressed for Conquering / Haute Couture 04 Transport” by the Austrian artist Inés Doujak. Doujak’s papier mache sculpture depicts Spain’s former King Juan Carlos I being sodomized by the Bolivian labor leader and feminist icon Domitila Barrios, who is in turn sodomized by a German Shepherd dog.
On the Christmas 1977, Domitila Barrios led a massive fasting that overthrew Banzer’s presidency. On this Christmas 2015, Bartomeu Marí is in the limelight attracting public offerings to his caganer figure protagonist of the traditional Latin American fanal.
Performative offerings by Natalia Carminati, Victor Jaenada and Efrén Álvarez.
