Coinciding with the recent announcement of the extension of the exhibition Invisible Migrants. Spaniards in the United States. (1868 – 1945) until November 29 at the Centro Cultural Conde Duque in Madrid, the official “latálogo” of the exhibition is on sale on its website. This is a collector’s item inspired by the metal boxes that were once used to store photographs and souvenirs.
This particular catalog contains a careful selection of 80 photographs from the immense archive documented by the exhibition’s curators, James Fernández and Luis Argeo. Fourteen of these postcards contain on the back a fictional microstory signed by Alberto Olmos, Cristina Colmena, Cristina Pato, Eduardo Lago, Kirmen Uribe, Manuel Vilas, María Dueñas, Marina Perezagua, Mateo Sancho, Mercedes Cebrián, Natalia Carrero, Sara Cordón, and the curators themselves; a moving visual and literary journey that is also completed with an unpublished text by María Dueñas.
