005.00 TRAIL INTRODUCTION

Trail Editor: Mayssa Fattouh

When Tapies had stated that “If I paint as I paint it is first of all because I am Catalan”, he did not have the intention of limiting himself solely to the question of identity in the form of nationality and its political drama. In this statement his identity with a capital I was being unraveled and it is this I and its plurality that I would like to canvass here with my interviewees. In this trail I will focus on the artist’s individuality, his/her process of creation and the interpretation of this subject in his/her works.
