Art and memory. Contemporary artistics proposals 

Project based on research on the use of forced labor by the Franco dictatorship for the reconstruction of the country and to favor friendly industrialists until far beyond the postwar period. From combining the information extracted from the architecture and urbanism magazine Recostrucción —edited by the General Directorate of Devastated Regions and Reparations, a luxury pamphlet at the service of the regime's propaganda and the dissemination of the aesthetic ideas of fascist architects - and the works of different contemporary historians who have shed light on this great economic machinery sustained by forced labor. The project, from the title to the treatment of images, plants and elevations with its corresponding "technical file", intentionally uses a cold aesthetic, typical of an exhibition of architectural projects, such as those organized each year by the National Service of Regions Devastated and Repairs. However, in addition to the name of the project, this technical file includes the years of execution and the name of the architects and information on the number of Republican prisoners who were used in the construction.
