Nearly half a million Spaniards crossed the border into France after Barcelona fell to General Francisco Franco 80 years ago. Artist Maud Haya-Baviera went looking for the personal testimony of individuals born after their parents’ exile in order to question the legacy of the Spanish Civil War and more specifically the repercussions that immigration has over different generations. The Waves takes us on a journey from urban to rural France unfolding the stories of three individuals born of Spanish Political Refugees. The recent turmoil in Europe has brought back memories of Spain’s own Civil war to those still affected by its emotional impact.
