On the occasion of the celebration of the V World Congress against the death penalty, in Madrid, the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando has linked up with the Academic Network against capital punishment (REPECAP) to host a one-day Conference at its headquarters on June 11, 2013, to debate various aspects of the abolition of capital punishment and the United Nations resolution, in 2007, in favour of a universal moratorium.
This congress seeks an interdisciplinary approach to this matter, as well as not only driving the study and construction of a theory about human cruelty from the standpoint of ethics, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, etc., but also contemplating the statements made in various works of art.
It is an honour for the Academy to contribute the pioneering and profound discourse of Francisco Goya to this debate, who has been one of its most prominent members. This genial artist expressed a clear and committed position against cruelty and the death penalty in many of his etchings, edited and conserved in the National Museum of Chalcography of our Academy.
