The third edition of Ús Barcelona follows the idea of recovering unused spaces in the city through art and social participation and brings us to the neighbourhood of Poblenou.
This year the chosen space to resurrect is the symbol of industrialism of the 19th Century in Barcelona, the national monument and abandoned factory of Can Ricart. With its “death” in 2006 a wave of protests and a sense of grief arose in the neighbourhood and nobody has set foot in the building since.
Concept & Execution
Ús Barcelona called the tribe, formed by neighbours, musicians, wise shamans, artists and hunters/gatherers, to perform the resurrection ceremony for this monument. Long live the resurrection!
