‘The day March 18th, 2016 at 9 am we met about 15 people, including the drafting team and collaborators, to start editing, prepress and layout of the Diari Indultat. After about 21 hours, we go with the arts final way of printing.
At 7:30 in the morning of the 19th, the first plates were already producing in the press. Nearly seven hours later, at 14:10, there was stop machines. Encartados the sheets, cut and packaged, the Diari Indultat was already a reality.
At 18 hours, no pardons 2,000 copies reached the Arrancapins fault where they were placed in our sculpture.
At 00:23 pm on March 20, 10 hours and 13 minutes after exist, Diari Indultat began to disappear in the fire.’

Diari Indultat is a missing art project.
A photobook in newspaper format that was created, edited and burned during the Fallas in Valencia 2016 in a unique and unprecedented event.
More than 50 national reference photographers of different generations, including several National Awards for Photography, and creators from other artistic disciplines.
They created for three days the content of  The Journal Indultat  just before being burned in a failure on March 19, the day of the Cremà .
There were no rules: The authors had total creative freedom.
The publication had a unique and numbered 5,000 copies.
The only way to pardon a copy was buying it before March 19 at 12 pm. It is no longer possible.
The rest disappeared forever in the fire, leaving the Diari Indultat discontinued.
Diari Indultat will never be republished.
