Julio Iglesias's House
La casa de Julio Iglesias
ALT | Modes
In attempting to replicate Spain, Shanghai’s architects concluded "Spain means Julio Iglesias." Yes, that Julio Iglesias, the Spanish pop-star from the 70s and father to Enrique Iglesias; the king of Latin pop. Apparently Iglesias holds so much meaning for Spaniards that the entire nation could be reduced to this single male icon. Natalia Marín’s biting undertones and sumptuous representational imagery expertly critique such fatuous notions of national identity, while dismantling concepts of idealism.
