To Have and Have Not

Francisco Reina

THE ART OF POWER (2010)

We are inclined to think that institutions are driven by reason and collective interests of society. This era, Francisco Reina says, has shown how much of an illusion that idea is, certainly in Spain. Institutions, whether in the public or private sector, are to an increasing degree in the grip of small but very powerful political and economic groups, which have scarcely any contact with the society. Reina has digitally manipulated their bulwarks to make the inaccessibility and opacity of power visually perceptible.
