When the ideal contact between the Institutions, the Law, the Economy, the Politics and the human factor is missing, the society loses its basic principles and becoming inhuman. Following a path traced by images, artworks and thoughts, we try to mark the evolving of this searching for the vital contact to the environment in which we live, between natural/universal and artificial/urban space. Through history, from the prehistoric rock paintings, until contemporary art, it is possible to see how the artist cyclically tries to remark this connection to the whole in which he lives.
