The exhibit attacks monotheism, and blames it for all wars; extols the divine Elvis Presley as the new atheist god; and traces a parallel between totalitarianism (Communism, Nazism, etc) and its leaders (Stalin, Mao, Kim II Sung, Mussolini, Hitler) and the hierarchy of the Church.

The exhibition "Dios(es). Modos de empleo" (God(s). How to Use [It/Them]), which opened on September 13th, 2007, at Centro de la Villa, in Plaza Colón, Madrid, was sponsored by Madrid City Hall, the State Department of Foreign Affairs, and the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation (Agencia Española de Cooperación
Internacional, AECI).
The exhibition promotes laicism "because without it, democracy is not possible; laicism is the only radical remedy to religion violence".
