What’s more, if you wore a striking T-shirt with a witty phrase or suggestive drawing, it’s likely you’ve been photographed yourself. His name is Santi Ochoa and he’s been doing it since 2003. In his file there are now more than 20,000 images of T-shirts.
From all of them, he selected 81 for this exhibition ‘La guerra de las camiseta’, (T-Shirt Wars),now finished, in the ABM Confecciones space, on Calle Encarnación González in Madrid. The idea occurred to him last year – “to make the exhibition just before the approval of the Gag Law,” explains Ochoa to Diagonal – but it is only now it has been carried out, motivated by ‘The Last Straw’..

La manifestación partió a las 19:00 de Atocha y recorrió la zona centro hasta Sol al grito de “Hogar social, hogar criminal”
Esta tarde estamos presentes en la manifestación convocada por la plataforma unitaria “Madrid para todas” ante el avance de los mensajes racistas y fascistas.
Recordamos que otra manifestación, de corte neo-nazi recorrerá también las calles de Madrid tras haber sido autorizada por la delegada del gobierno de Madrid. La misma delegada que intentó prohibir las esteladas en el partido de fútbol que también tendrá lugar hoy en Madrid por considerar que “incitaban a la violencia”.
Numerosos colectivos han apoyado esta iniciativa que ya ha estado durante estas semanas realizando distintas actividades en varios barrios de Madrid.
The latest short documentary in the Global Uprisings series explores ongoing resistance and self-organization in the midst of the crisis in Spain.
As social conditions continue to deteriorate across Spain, people have been turning to the streets and to each other to find solutions to the crisis. This film tells the story of the massive mobilization that saw millions of people converge on Madrid on March 22, 2014; the story of the proliferation of social centers, community gardens, self-organized food banks; and the story of large-scale housing occupations by and for families that have been evicted. The film pieces together many of the creative ways that people have been coping with crisis and asks what the future may hold for Spain.
Filmed and edited in March/April 2014, it is part of the Global Uprisings documentary series. View more at globaluprisings.org.
