For Rabascall, ethics, which he views as indissolubly linked to aesthetics, forms the base of the critical eye that he casts on media discourse. However, he does not lack a philosophical sense of humour, which has resulted in works like Spain is Different (1976-1977), in which apparently trivial texts and images form a wandering exhibition in full “institutional transition”. For the series Mi colección, he became a photographer, making an inventory of his collection of miniature televisions. Using images and titles that form part of the work, he ironically attacked the powerful medium of television, which has been so hegemonic in the last century.
