Fascisms and Apocalyptics is a photobook in magazine format that explores the relationship between the 1918 flu and the rise of fascism in Germany. This work arises after investigating the economic, social and ideological effects of the pandemic that a hundred years ago caused fifty million deaths at the end of the First World War. These considerations intertwine narratively with the symbology of the Apocalypse of Saint John or Book of Revelations , in a unique German edition of 1920. The analogies between the influenza of 1918 and the current one The COVID-19 pandemic are revealed and alert us by resounding the apocalyptic echoes, in its most catastrophic sense, although also revealing, of the dangerous discourse of the extreme right rising in the world. Anti-Manifest is a photobook that investigates citizen movements in reaction to authoritarian power. Examine the revolutions that have arisen against Soviet rule within the satellite countries of the Eastern Bloc. It is made up of two books, one being physically inside the other. Inside the book Anti the second publication, the Manifesto , is hidden. Thus, between the two books, an intertwined dialogue is established in a continuous infinite sequence, alternating between liberating uprisings and a violent repression that will evidence the definitive condemnation for the self-destruction of the state. War Edition is a photobook that explores 20th century Europe through its war conflicts. Roberto Aguirrezabala approaches this work from documentary rigor and a photographic fiction of an essay nature. He places historical objects in the role of narrators and witnesses of an era to pass along with photographs, intervened documents, drawings and exclusive pieces for this editorial format. P>
