“Cartografía turbia” is a Project developed around the district of Tetuán, in Madrid, during the year 2012 and with the sponsorship of the center of contemporary art “Matadero”, Madrid.

This artistic work invites the spectator to reflect about human memory and its transmission, by building a work based solely on the stories that people convey the author.

The project is based on the mismatches that human memory may suffer depending on the various parameters inherent in life, such as the specifics of personal time/space, background or emotions, as well as questions concerning the interpretation, in this case graphical, of how can memory be transmitted.

To perform the project, it was proposed to fifty people to answer with a text the following question: “How was the district of Tetuán between the years 1940 and 1980?, describe to me the architecture, sounds, atmosphere, people, feelings of the neighborhood at that time. Based solely on these inputs, the author makes graphic representations through drawings to capture the vision, memories and emotions that each person had on the neighborhood.
