The mountain of Tindaya (Fuerteventura, Canary Islands) is more than a mountain. It was a sacred site for the indigenous people of Fuerteventura; later, its rock was quarried and sold for ornamental purposes; more recently, it was the proposed location for a ‘Monument to Tolerance’ designed by renowned artist Eduardo Chillida. Today, goat herders and tourists cross paths on it. Marrero-Guillamon’s explores the multiple meanings that coalesce and compete around this site, weaving images of activist, exhibitions, public talks, interviews with locals and computer simulations of the proposed Monument, against a background of tourism, post-crisis ruins and arid landscapes.
