Interesting review of Núria Güell´s project "La feria de las Flores" (2015-2016) by Semíramis en Babilonia. The author saw the piece at Feria ARCO 2017. This is a great occasion to remember Núria´s project, which was exhibited for the first time in Barcelona in her solo show "Good Intentions". Food for thought for all those who question the embedded violence, patriarchy, sexualization, exploitation and body commodification in our current system.

Another relevant fact is the delivery of the Prize Illy 2017 to Iván Argote, for his deconstruction with humor of the political, social and historical reality across the game of languages, photographies, sculptures, magazines and state publications. In his work ´Is this tomorrow´ it dislocates seemingly stable structures as the iron with the fragility of the paper perforated of images and information of the capitalist market.
