This project addresses the figure of the vejigante from the contemporaneity and the visual arts for a review of the various meanings that, over time, has been granted to this emblematic figure of our popular culture. It studies the image of vejigante, nowadays so carnavalesque, as a cathartic being of resistance, justice, struggle and as an image of persistence and change.
