During three months the artists talked to people from North Africa through virtual platforms about identity, their image of Europe, their future perspectives, political situation, among other topics. From these dialogs, the most relevant statements were extracted and printed on T shirts. More than hundred volunteers from Murcia will be wearing these T shirts through the city during the first week of the Biennial. For further information, please check:
