REDUCCIÓN (noun) 1. Reduce the amount, size, intensity, or importance of a thing. 2. Subdue or force to obey something or someone who offers resistance. 3. Changing or converting one thing into something else, usually smaller. The legal status of an immigrant determines whether she or he can regularly transit all city streets. The immigrant’s daily routine is affected when he or she does not have identification documents or a valid residence in the country. That is known as an Undocumented Person. The police force checks periodically the legal status of residents in certain areas of the city looking for undocumented immigrants. If the immigrant is arrested, he or she is subdued and transferred to the Undocumented Detention Center in order to be deported. Reducción (to subdue) explores undocumented immigrant’s procedures of arrestment and violence in Madrid. The Project is composed of photographs of two undocumented immigrants implementing the techniques of the Police Defense Manual to subdue each other. The procedure was instructed by a police officer.
