The edited correspondence and related visual material is presented in a limited edition artist book publication, and the reading open the conversation on the possibility of Spain having a new time zone. One of reclamation after the political and emotional reality of time lost under the Franco dictatorship, one where the current relativity of precarious time in democracy is re-imagined. The discussion will address questions such as how our private lives are affected by political systems of the past and the present, and how we can escape the fascist structures which are emerging—given that within democracy and its institutions a patriarchal relationship between the state and its citizens is still present.

The book was presented as part of the exhibition The stolen hour

The scope of my work is very broad because it is in permanent dialogue with the changing social rhythms, time perceptions and political landscapes.
