Description
A portrait of the Catalan revolutionary Fèlix Goñi serves as a reminder of the life, sacrifice, and death of a man dedicated to his movement and beliefs. Goñi was born on November 24, 1958, and in the late 1970s joined the Revolutionary Catalan Youth and the PSAN-P, an offshoot of the Socialist Party of National Liberation. He died on June 2, 1979, while carrying a defective explosive destined for the offices of the French car company Renault. Martí Marcó’s name also appears on the sticker. Marcó was killed by police at a Barcelona checkpoint, and he and Goñi represent those who lost their lives fighting for Catalan freedom. Goñi’s portrait as a revolutionary hero is reminiscent of the iconic Latin American guerrilla fighter Che Guevara.

Description-Translation
Una foto del revolucionario catalán Fèlix Goñi sirve para recordarnos la vida, el sacrificio y la muerte de un hombre dedicado al movimiento y sus creencias. Goñi nació el 24 de noviembre de 1958 y a finales de los años setenta se unió a las Juventudes revolucionarias y al PSAN-P, una rama del Partido Socialista de Liberación Nacional. Murió el 2 de junio de 1979, mientras llevaba un explosivo defectuoso destinado a explotar en las oficinas de la compañía francesa de coches Renault. El nombre de Martí Marco también aparece en la pegatina. Marcó fue asesinado en un puesto de control por la policía en Barcelona y él y Goñi representan a aquellos que perdieron la vida luchando por la libertad del Cataluña. El retrato de Goñi como un héroe revolucionario recuerda al icónico guerrillero latinoamericano Che Guevara.

Curator's Notes
In the fall of 2012, St. Lawrence University students analyzed and wrote bilingual descriptions about street art stickers from Spain for Dr. Marina Llorente’s course Español 439: Literatura, cine y cultura de masas en la España contemporánea. The project turned into a spring 2013 exhibition at the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery entitled “Pegatinas Políticas: Barcelona (1970-1985) y Madrid (2012).” This sticker was catalogued by Thomas W. Draper, SLU Class of 2013.
