Exhumation Finissage

On 24 September 2019 Spain’s Supreme Court approved unanimously the exhumation of the former dictator Franco from the underground basilica of Valle de los Caídos mausoleum.

Hybrid Space Lab’s project “Deep Space: Re-signifying Valle de los Caídos” investigating what transformations are still needed at the Valle de los Caídos so as not to create a cenotaph – an empty burial monument – is becoming increasingly urgent.
The large scale banner with Hybrid Space Lab’s elaborate mapping of the most controversial monument Valle de los Caídos will be hanging at the Madrid Goethe Institute’s facade until Franco’s exhumation day – that will then be celebrated with the finissage of Hybrid Space Lab’s public space exhibition.
