The festival started with a decision the local goverment to censor and erase (after the festival) the work piece of the artist INO. The piece (see main foto) of INO portrayed a small hand that resisted with the middle finger against a big hand that pointed imposingly. With this decision the organizers of the festival decided to cut the partnership they had with the Sant Antoni city council. INO in his social network wrote “you can erase a wall but not an idea”.

Lo Spino created a video mapping inspired in Frank Herbert`s novel Litany Against Fear and it was applied in a multi layer surface. Spaik left an amazing piece of an eagle, using the optical illusion to create this piece in the tunnel. There was also a tribute to the refugee with the sculpture of the artist Domino.Rebecca Sánchez made her piece a against of gender violence.
