Arcadi Oliveres was born in Barcelona in November 1945 and, after a full and committed life in social movements, he died in Sant Cugat del Vallès in February 2021.
One evening in February 2021, when it was already dark, he was walking slowly through the garden. Janine Künzi, his partner, helps him and they push with effort the wooden door of their house, which they never lock. They take off their coats and he sits down in his usual armchair, next to a small table where the golden pothos and the dossier containing a collection of farewell messages that people send him through the website "Paraules per a l'Arcadi" (Words for Arcadi) await him.
The images that make up this series were taken shortly after these moments, in the context of an interview published in La Directa in which Mar Valldeoriola, the editor, and Arcadi Oliveres meet to drink Janine's ginger tea and talk about the seventh and latest book "Paraules d'Arcadi, què hem après del món i com podem actuar" (Words for Arcadi, what we have learned from the world and how we can act) published by Angle Editorial.
