Photographer's Note

Ten kilometers from Cáceres, the state's capital, is Malpartida de Cáceres, a small village in a nature area called Los Barruecos, wich was declared Natural Monument in 1998, and there you can find this singular building. It uses to be a wool washing place but now it's the Wolf Vostell's Museum.

This german artist, known as the father of the European happening and video art and co-founder of the Fluxus international artistic movement, settled in Malpartida from 1976 until his death.

The building, called El lavadero de lana (The wool washing place), is bigger and more beautiful than you can see in this image, but I tried to show the place where it is and it's relationship between it and the water. I don't konw why it is co close to water, but since it was a place dedicated to wash wool, I'm sure it needed a lot. The foreground of this picture shows the middle of the wall and the hole where the water goes through when rains raise level. Just before the building you can see and old engine used to bump water up and to the right, in the background, is the place where boats where parked. They were used to catch a delicious fish called Tenca.

Well, thet's all for my first photo. Sorry for my english and welcome to Cáceres.
