Panel Series | Victims Of Franquismo: A Reparation That Never Comes

February 23, 2017

Organized by Montse Armengou | Spring 2017 King Juan Carlos I of Spain Chair in Spanish Culture and Civilization

This series weighs the effects of violent repression during forty years of Franco’s dictatorship, even as we assess the persistence of official silence and a crisis of national memory through the last forty years of Spanish democracy. This series of conversations consider how instruments of remembering and reparation have emerged beyond state sectors, and in the absence of government policies, opening important breaches of recovery and reclamation for victims and their descendants.

In Spain the systematic violation of human rights during decades of the Franco Dictatorship remains an untreated social wound. Mass graves, assassinations, torture, kidnapping, child slavery, and state terror of those decades remain a difficult legacy for Spanish democracy and collective memory.

Though these violations have been recognized and denounced by international organizations such as the UN and Amnesty International, the state’s failure to create mechanisms for truth, reconciliation, or reparation, has forced extraordinary interventions by civil society. Journalists, civic organizations, voluntary associations, academic researchers, documentarians and filmmakers have helped to collect material evidence, historical records, personal testimonies that reveal the cost of this long period of dictatorship.

"I’ll Get You Out of Here, Abuelo!" (Armengou/Belis, Spain, 2013)

Q&A with Montse Armegou, Spring 2017 King Juan Carlos I of Spain Chair in Spanish Culture and Civilization

General Francisco Franco buried thousands of people in the Valle de los Caídos (Valley of The Fallen), a monumental memorial constructed in the municipality of San Lorenzo de El Escorial by his government. The place is a symbol of the dictatorship. The UN has suggested that the site be transformed into a museum.

“I'll get you out of here, Abuelo!” (directed by Montse Armengou and Ricard Belis in 2013) invokes the solemn promise made by Joan Pinyol, the grandson of a Republican soldier whose body was disinterred from the grave where he was buried and forcibly transported to the Valle de los Caídos without the consent or even the knowledge of his relatives.

Today hundreds of families like the Pinyols, whose relatives are buried in the Valle de los Caídos, are fighting for the right to remove their loved ones and bury them near their homes. But there are many logistical and political obstacles involved in this reclamation. By telling this story, the filmmakers uncover intimate and public struggles over political memory in Spain.

Q&A with Montse Armengou to follow.

The Museum of the Old Colony : Opens Thursday February 2nd

January 18, 2017

Puerto Rico has endured 523 years of continuous and ongoing colonial rule: first under Spain, and, since 1898, as a possession of the United States. The island, an “unincorporated territory of the United States” has been plunged into a catastrophic debt crisis and a punitive program of austerity. It is widely regarded as the world’s oldest colony.

The Museum of the Old Colony is a work of conceptual art conceived by Pablo Delano. The exhibit gathers still photographs and moving images of Puerto Rico that reveal the visual logics of colonialism. This repertoire of images and subjects form a visual history of the political and cultural hegemony imposed by the United States on virtually all aspects of Puerto Rican life.


The installation’s title and style ironically invoke traditional historical or anthropological museums, their use of ethnographic imagery, and their didactic text panels. The title also derives its name from a U.S. brand of soft drink named “Old Colony,” popular in Puerto Rico since the 1950s and still sold at island groceries and restaurants. The Museum of the Old Colony therefore references the subtle, the naturalized, and the pernicious forces of colonialism in Puerto Rico, its political economy, and its everyday life.

The Museum of the Old Colony is an intervention into Puerto Rican cultural history and political memory. It is also an intensely personal exercise by Delano to understand and come to terms with his own relationship with the island, where he was born in 1954.

With the additional support of The Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics.

He has been awarded several literary prizes in Cuba and has been invited to present his work in Venezuela, Colombia, Costa Rica, India, and Italy.
