ALMERIA artist Andres Garcia Ibañez’s latest work will be dedicated to “universal brotherhood” based on Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.
Garcia Ibañez is the driving force behind the Olula del Rio’s Museo Ibañez and a 36-strong choir of naked men and women “singing of fellow-feeling and world harmony” posed for his giant canvas.
Human nudity, claimed the party, “is also regarded as a sign of harmony, honesty and zero tolerance for corruption” – the same values that EQUO fought for.
The party expressed its thanks to Ibañez both for suggesting their collaboration in such a significant picture as well as his welcome for the group when they visited his art gallery.
“Given the cruelty of a system attacked by the markets and a capitalism which exterminates creatures and exploits the planet’s resources so uncontrollably, global change is called for,” said EQUO.
