Art interventions on twenty-one billboards and bus shelters distributed around the town. Twenty artists from various places –Mataró, Seville, Barcelona, Malaga, Madrid, Mexico, Colombia, France, Germany, Belgium, Thailand, Japan– took part in this project in an attempt to change the unidirectional messages of advertising and recoup these areas as places for reflection, doubt, critique, paradoxes a simple free beauty.
