Spanish Art Collective Unveils a Handmade Monument to Protest Corruption

Our favorite Spanish art collective Luzinterruptus is back with a satirical public installation comprised of 50 illuminated Colón laundry detergent containers constructed into a towering monument in the city of Madrid. The project titled "Colón Washes Whiter", highlights the absurd decision to move a Christopher Columbus statue, from its original location in the Prado Recoletos Corridor to a slightly more prominent home a few meters away, at a cost of almost 4 million euros ($5.3 million), drawn from the State Fund for Local Investment. Speaking about the project Luzinterruptus explained: "Perhaps it is with this magical potion, that the Spanish dirty money has been washed of its origins, to convert it into something else, cleaner and whiter and of perfectly legal use."
