“We are a country sons of Ruben Dario and Sandino” is as a campaign slogan for the construction of the Nicaraguan identity. For this project I want to speak from the discomfort and subvert the idea of Founding Fathers as immutable and sacred beings in the time. I create a family photograph with Ruben Dario and Sandino and myself to discuss the construction of unity-family-nation from alternative notions of sexuality and gender that exist in the Nicaraguan reality.
