Since its official opening to the public in 2007, the curators of the site of conscience Londres 38 have presented a variety of histories of its past. Gradually, the state has wrested the site's interpretation from the victims and their families, at the cost of particularity in time, place and precise historical detail. We trace the struggles between the civil society colectivos (collectives) and a variety of state agencies for the dominant narrative, and argue that today the state controls the interior of the building; the colectivos control only the street-not unlike the situation as it was before the building opened six years ago. © 2013 Taylor and Francis.
