‘Alepo’. Jaime Pitarch

— Premiere

27 May — 29 July 2016

Jabón de Alepo, is a single channel video that shows the long process by which a new aleppo soap bar is being used by more than 400 people, coming from a wide variety of colectives, to wash their hands until its disappearance. The waning soap bar acts as a metaphor for the city itself in which a fratricidal war is provoking the extinction of its civil society as many first world societies wash their hands literally and metaphorically. The long duration of the video promotes its fragmented viewing thus reducing the reality of Aleppo to the status of consumable information provided regularly through the media.
