Defense memory: physical and mental architectures

Defense memory: physical and mental architectures

About four centuries ago, the fortress on which the foundations of Es Baluard Museu stand today was erected in Mallorca. The project was carried out by the Renaissance engineer Giovan Giacomo Paleari Fratino, who also designed multiple fortifications located in the Mediterranean and in the heart of Europe. The fact of thinking about walls located in these enclaves introduces us, paradoxically, in a timeline that we know when it begins and that, unfortunately, is still running its course. We are interested in giving visibility to the contradiction and paradox that characterizes history. In a way, we present a journey that brings us closer to Frantz Fanon, recognizing ourselves as heirs of colonialist and occupation actions, as well as to the relationships and denunciations that Foucault pointed out in Watch and Punish. What is the relationship between a bastion, a prison and a school? We want to listen, as Gayatri Spivak would say, to the voices that exist on the other side of the wall.
