Spain, 1973


“Can the Darwinian approach be reversed? Of all the species that inhabit our planet, which has evolved and towards where? These questions may be easy to ask, and possibly to solve, if we enter the dystopian world of the artist Cesc Abad.

Man has differentiated himself from other animals by his capacity for reasoning, critical thinking and, in short, his intelligence, and according to Nietzsche’s ideas, he has even been able to overcome the slavery of the human condition and achieve freedom, which allows him to give free rein to his creativity.

However, it may happen that what seems to be the pinnacle of civilisation is not designed for man, but for animals capable of developing more efficient behaviour than humans”.
