Bunker Project. Deterrence. The tide and the limit
The Mediterranean has become a part of everyday life, informed by a belief in a different, perhaps better, place on the opposite side of the sea. This gaze is echoed in Rosell Meseguer´s images that look through the slits of defence buildings along the harbour and coast of Cartagena on the Spanish Peninsula (and other places and countries) that were last used in combat during the Spanish Civil War but now are abandoned and isolated from transport links providing a panoramic gaze.
