Contact Collectionair for details about the artwork:

“I piled up all the Anthems in the Spanish language from all over the world. The reason why there are so many Anthems in Spanish is colonialism. The population affected by it, got reduced by up to a third and was either destroyed completely or lost part of their language and culture. Though the lyrics of the Bolivian Anthem say: ‘This land is free, free at last. Its servile state has now finally ceased ... To die before we would live as slaves!’, the words are still in Spanish, the language of the occupier.”
