About the Book
As I write this text, in several countries in northern Africa and some southern European countries such as Spain, a revolution is happening.
A social revolution (I refer more specifically to Spain) in which the people have decided that enough is enough; enough of anti-social policies, corrupt politicians, a ‘democratic system’ closer to perfect tyranny than fair democracy.
At Completely Naked we wanted to explore specifically this issue and for this reason we chose an ‘urban spectacle’ as our focus of work.
The setting is South London, The Elephant & Castle, in one of the social Europe's largest social housing estates, The Heygate Estate. Once home to more than 1200 working class families, it is now undergoing demolition marked for 2015, with the aim of building another more luxurious location for those of different economic status.
Completely Naked made a public call for a free and peaceful action where participants could express their emotions and create a dialogue with the urban context to which we refer.
