Spanish Entrance

Arnolfini Mini[e]MailArt is a Hungarian initiative that has been collecting digital mail art since 2008. The current exhibition no.57 is dedicated to doorways. It features – among others – works by Reid Wood (USA), Gülşah Özdemir (Turkey), and Gerald Jatzek (from left to right).

Gerald’s Porta Granadina is based on a photo that he made in Granada’s historical Albaicin quarter. The work includes a statement by the Spanish poet Federico García Lorca (1898-1936) who was killed by fascist forces:

“I think that being from Granada inclines me toward a sympathetic understanding of persecuted peoples. Of gypsies, of blacks, of Jews, … of Moors, which we all carry inside.”
