Desacuerdos 3 offers readers a selection of the documents that were analysed, exhibited and discussed during the course of the Desacuerdos project. In keeping with the general spirit underlying Desacuerdos, there has been no attempt to create a canon of antagonist aesthetic practices in Spain. Instead, the aim of the compilation is to emphasise the dissonances and contaminations inherent to any highly complex cultural process, in order to counteract the inertias of the dominant historiography and identify possible gaps for future research.

Desacuerdos is a collaborative effort between institutions, which set out to track the cultural practices, models and counter-models that do not correspond to the dominant structures, policies and practices imposed in Spain since its Transition. The project has created what is at once a critical history of said structures and politics at a moment in history when, although they have been discredited and proved inefficient, they are still being used as models of administration for Arts and Culture.

I like to work with what is often called "cultural heritage", but the materials that I use are banal and clichéd, like sugar blocks, doors, couscous, rugs, official documents.
