An image that publicly represents a place is called imageology, a term that Wikipedia defines as "the scientific knowledge necessary to create, develop and maintain a public image". The tourist image can be real or fictitious; it can be invented, recreated, distorted, it can be the truth or a lie, or it can also be a myth. The project consists of analysing the evolution of the public image of the city of Palma through 40 quotes taken from books and travel guides from 1839 to the present.
Neus Marroig holds a degree in Fine Arts and a Master's degree in Creative Documentary. Her interests are focused on researching the mechanisms that are generated to record, set in time or commemorate, and which, consequently, are mechanisms for forgetting.
