AL CALIU DE LA ROSA DE FOC: APROPIACIONS INSOLENTS DE L’ESPAI PÚBLIC A BARCELONA (1996-2004)

Catalan Review (1998), 18, (1-2), 41–66.

Abstract

In contrast ta the triumphant vision of Barcelona as a center of design, fashion, and tourism, the city that Manuel Delgado explores is one that is profoundly marked by the power of the street and popular movements. Drawing on collective ethnographic research on public space, Delgado considers the ties and tensions between urbanism and urbanity; the city as planned by politicians, engineers, architects, and designers and the city as practiced by its inhabitants and visitors; official monumentalizations and popular mobilizations. After an overview of the uses of the street in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (ranging from religious processions to revolutionary barricades), the focus shifts to anti-militarist, anti-capitalist, and pro-okupa demonstrations in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.
