"We conceive art as an instrument of defense of the territory to respond to the criminal activity and administrative violence of the renewable industries that threaten the valleys of Bortziri and Malerreka with various wind macro-projects," said Haizeak Bizirik. The exposure approach is as follows: "It's the inventory of the infinite beauty that lives in this endless land. Let's draw everything. To keep us close, to keep us from being stolen. So we will understand that we cannot lose ourselves."

Full opening

A full programme has been organized by 1 March, starting at 18:00 at the Casa de Cultura de Bera. The exhibition Irantzu Piquero and José Giles will expose the eleven posters against the wind turbines, whose theme is: "birds that cross our territory."
