Artwork featuring Catalan “political prisoners” removed from exhibition


An art fair in Madrid has removed an artwork which features photographs of jailed Catalan politicians. The artist, Santiago Sierra, who is known for creating provocative works, used pixelated photos of 24 people, among them separatist politicians.

The operator of the ARCOmadrid art fair said it took the decision as the work risked becoming a distraction.

ArcoMadrid took the decision to remove the exhibit from a gallery stand at the fair on Wednesday.
