Always Franco

Door: Eugenio Merino.

“Eugenio Merino eventually won his legal battle with the FNFF over his “Always Franco” artwork. The judge ruled that his sculpture was “ironic and humorous,” rather than offensive.

“What really gets to me is that people say to me: ‘What? Not Franco again!’” Merino says, of his history-based art projects.

“What do they mean, ‘Franco again?’ It’s as if, when you talk about Franco you’re delving into the past. But you’re not, you’re talking about the present.””
