In 1937 Joan Miró created a work called Aidez L’Espagne in support of the Spanish Republic when it was under attack by the Fascists.
I made this version of his print in solidarity with Americans after the election in 2016. And by ‘America’, I refer to the idea America is, not nationalism.
“Dans la lutte actuelle, je vois du côté fasciste les forces périmées, de l’autre côté le peuple dont les immenses ressources créatrices donneront à l’Espagne un élan qui étonnera le monde”, which translates as:
“In today’s fight, I see on the fascist side antiquated forces, on the other side a people whose immense creative resources shall give to Spain an élan that will astonish the world”
Élan = momentum.
