This artwork displays a kiosk with the owner wearing a cap adorned with the Venezuelan tricolor flag. The kiosk showcases various newspaper headlines on past and recent events in Venezuela's history, including invasions, blockades, sanctions, and xenophobia against Venezuelans. Other references include an anti-U.S. interventionism headline, Eduardo Galeano’s "The Open Veins of Latin America” book, and an illustration of Cipriano Castro (Venezuelan president from 1899-1908), holding a machete with "Venezuela for Venezuelans" inscribed on it. In the background, a mural is depicted with text written by me that reads as: "Resistance to foreign influences inciting hatred towards our nation.”
This piece pays homage to Venezuela's fight to protect its sovereignty amid over a century of foreign interventionism attempts.
