Economic confessions

Audio installation.

Project done in collaboration with Xavier Bassas.

Barcelona,

is an action that consisted of a real confession which took place on January 5, 2014 at the Cathedral of Barcelona. In the exhibition space, the action is formalized in an installation that invites visitors to kneel on the kneeler and listen to the recording of the action.
We continue here the critical thought in which the entire project “Lo prometido es deuda” is focused on. Our aim is to open some questions about debt economy and religion as mechanisms of control of the individuals’ subjectivity. Where we used to read “sin”, read now “default”.
