La Cultura de la Felicidad (The Culture of Happiness)
La Cultura de la Felicidad (The Culture of Happiness) is a series of five photographs addressing everyday life—a couple in a bed, lovers on a bench and a family reunion. The subjects wear masks made of white cardboard. The series suggests the idea of a reality hidden under the appearances of the power in place that denies violence to citizens.
Pazos believes that art must respond to the condition of the country by questioning authority and violence in order to give individuals the possibility of constructing a critical discourse. As in Eastern Europe countries, performance has been a means of acting aesthetically and politically in places that are not marked by power with an a priori invisible art form.
