Cuba-Spain, 2008-13

The work focuses on issues related to immigration restrictions and the social consequences that these engender. For this project, Núria Güell offered herself as a bride to any Cuban who wanted to immigrate and obtain Spanish citizenship. The aspiring husbands were invited to write a love letter that was submitted to a jury composed by three prostitutes who eventually declared the winner. Once married and having the husband obtained the Spanish citizenship, the couple would divorce.
