Marco Godoy uses video, sculpture and performance to explore the relationship between images and ideology. He searches for new ways to communicate current social and political issues.

The contemporary political landscape of Spain in the latter half of the 2010s gave rise to a number of protest movements. The most lasting grew out of tension surrounding the future of the Catalan region, which culminated in a declaration of independence in 2017. The Spanish Senate responded by imposing direct rule, forcing Catalan leaders into exile throughout the rest of Europe. The 2019 trial of prominent Catalan leaders resulted in nine sentences of between 9 and 13 years for sedition and misuse of public funds.
