Adrian Melis compiles in his work ruins of utopia, dreams and nightmares, bounded by images, lines and walls visible and invisible, marked by the economy and its social effects. “Memoria selectiva” reflects upon the concept of the intentional selection of memories, not only in a mentally and psychological level but also in a socio-political dimension, which finally filters and even erases those evocations, replacing them for fake memories created upon convenience. Censorship and content re-elaboration are fundamental agents of the construction of new speeches in order to generate new realities upon self interests, showing a methodology and manipulation of content adopted by post-truth politics.
