My first time is a video piece that brings together testimonies of 18 and 19 years old youngsters that are 1st year Political Science and Sociology undergrad students, recounting their first theft or shoplifting experience. The work addresses how theft (in its various forms according to Spanish law, such as "robo" and "hurto") is perceived, interpreted and justified in the social field. It tries to identify the different sensibilities around concepts that carry with them certain cultural practices. These habits operate in establishing the degree of social tolerance and point to the current public opinion engendered by political corruption.
