A model of society has sunk. Thus, we are dominated by a certain pessimism. This is the big question my work –this one– wants to establish. It is necessary to refine a line of thought interested in man and his conflicts. When will we wake up?  –Francesc Abad

Contemporary Art, Monograph
The first idea of this Francesc Abad's project was to reconstruct the process of knowledge, of culture. Confidence -since the Renaissance- in man and in the development of humanity has been reopened in recent times due to historical events and a daily reality that has washed away the optimistic perspective of man's future, and has installed him in an iron mechanism of crazed production and alienating work. The economic system that believed in progress has become real and has given way to a dance of death around the value of money and the dead end of consumption. Man has lost that incisive and at the same time dreamy look towards the new fields of knowledge. As the artist said:"Man must strive in this work of reflection and make decisions about his own future".
