La Libertad solo existe en la lucha por la libertad (Freedom only exists in the Seek for Freedom)

1988
Iron, wood, oil

The sentence written in this small work must have come from some anarchist literature I was reading at the time, Landauer or Kropovkin. The meaning has accompanied me during all my life, and is present in all I write currently. The word 'freedom' has been replaced during the years by 'truth', 'justice', 'knowledge' or 'art', but the principle continued working in the same way. The first thing that it implies is that there is no definitive freedom, justice or art, and that if one wants any of them, one cannot ever rest. The lamp is always lit, an oil candle as Romans used twenty centuries ago.
