This book is an initiative of the Guipuzcoan Association of Friends of Yoko Ono (AGdAdYO), carried out thanks to the Basque Government's Eremuak grant, with the involvement of: Xabier Zirikiain with the design, Isabel Dublang with the photographs, Gorka Calzada with the texts and Emilio Varela with a prologue.
From the very beginning, we, at AGdAdYO, were certain that we did not want to publish a straightforward artist book, with excessive biographical details or convoluted texts about his work. That is why we decided to do something a little different. And we put it in a box.
1-Mirador (Observatory): A journey through the most important moments and topics in Diego Matxinbarrena's artistic career, from the time his mother came to the conclusion that his son was destined to be a priest until his exhibition in the Koldo Mitxelena Ganbara room.
2-Techos pintados (Painted ceilings): A sample of Diego Matxinbarrena's daily work over the last fifteen years, including a selection of his work and texts, and a series of photographs of the artist at work.
3-Brújula (Compass): An original postcard drawn by Diego Matxinbarrena.
Organiser: The Guipuzcoan Association of Friends of Yoko Ono (AGdAdYO)
