“Breaking the Monument” is a selection of works from artists from very different backgrounds that, in diverse ways, attack the power of pre-established images, of all those that manipulate and condition us, that limit, condemn, censure and self-censure us. A group of creators, all women, whose approach is subtle, but also a full-on attack, based on iconoclasm and the subversion of symbols, new images of struggle and counter power, omission, exposure and conflict; an imaginary of defence, reaction and counter attack operating from the barricade and poetry; melting bronze, turning rubble into marble, creating new images of resistance from emotion and reason.
