Aparasolada is a performative listening that sustains the dusk of May 1st at the Cuartel de Pinos. The date commemorates the same day in 1931 on which the 1,722 hectares of the royal preserve of Casa de Campo were confiscated from the monarchy to became a municipal park of the city of Madrid and 300,000 people accessed it for the first time.
The piece was part of a site-specific action by Bwelke (María Buey González, Lorenzo García-Andreade, Juanito Jones) and Maral Kekejian.
