SPAIN: Still Cause


A project and exhibition by Christine Jones
8 February – 20 April 2014

Christine Jones is an artist and designer living in Falkirk and was a recipient of the Visual Artist Award Scheme: Forth Valley in 2010 and 2013

SPAIN: Still Cause is a project and exhibition focused on the struggle for justice and recognition which is ongoing in Spain post Franco. The project was inspired by the photojournalist Gerda Taro (1910–37) and her work during the Spanish Civil War (1936-9). She is believed to be the first female photojournalist to go to the front-lines, and the first to die there. This interest in Taro developed into an engagement with the legacy of the war and subsequent dictatorship (1939–75) and the rise of protest and resistance in the evolution of the ‘historical memory’ movement in Spain today.

Since April 2011 Christine has travelled to Spain meeting various individuals. The exhibition includes a series of drawing and photographic works based on this research and the people she met.
