Social Sculpture in Spain

What is Social Sculpture today?

How is Social Sculpture conceived by the artists working in this field? How do they understand their impact in the social sphere?

Trying to answer these questions I will travel and visit seven of them,  currently working and staying in the countryside all over Spain.
The aim, according to Campoadentro, the organisation in charge of the Project, is to bring the local rural public closer to art and culture using emotion and meaning and show the result of the creative process that they have hosted. Back in the city, the aim is to open up a debate and reflect upon today’s rural issues using the works exhibited.
