Varietés is a collection of pictures taken between the 1920s and the 1970s featuring artists and popular spectacles not always within the law. A tour around the aesthetic of this very particular form of looking at variety shows in Spain. A journey through the faces and the attitudes of a world which actually shone much less than the photographs sought to show. Varietés is the history of the ephemeral flash and the failure which are inherent to this form of understanding the spectacle. Moreover, it is a tribute to so many people who belonged to a world which is on the way to extinction and where the illusion and the magic of the night claimed to have such a fleeting but beautiful power.
