This collection is part of Barte’s project, Ciento Ochenta Grados (180 Degrees), a look into the 1970s in Spain through some key artists of that period. This project set sight on the future posed as possible during this time but which did not fully come true; a freer, fairer, and more beautiful life. (Labrador, 2017).”.
180 Degrees reminds us that it is possible to imagine a future because there was a time when it was imagined, using the past to question what is absent in our time. Therefore, it’s not a revival, without any reference to current reality, but rather an interest in the expectations and dreams of a time when imagining a better future was possible.
