On December 14, 2017, the national parliament began the treatment
of the pension reform bill sent by the government of President Macri.
While the deputies began the debate, in the Plaza de los Dos
Congresos began, since the return of democracy, to be the scene of
acts of violence that reached its highest level on December 18. The
violent acts did not stop the approval of the law of pension reform. AR
$ 40,000,000 was needed to restore and fix the historical and mythical
Plaza de los Dos Congresos. I decided to record the events of the last
day in the most visible way possible, through my photographic gaze.
Finally, there was a law in the parliamentary precinct, but in the Plaza
there wasn’t possible law.
