No one can “control” art I do what I can to respect —People exist in specific Time and space
July 16, 1979
Man is throwing
The Sandinistas at
one of the last
Somoza national guard garrison
The image —‘Molotov Man” was Pablo Arauz
In this digital age Images are dislocated Decontextualized
History works against context
Pablo Arauz —converted to the emblem Of an abstract riot
Protest the diminishment of His act of defiance.
