A photographic series presented as a visual newspaper which combines image layouts in colour and black and white. Divided into several chapters, this digital edition explores, through images, the behaviour of tourists in the city of Barcelona in August, 2016. An epilogue closes the panorama, showing only the empty landscapes that remain after the tourists have gone.
Juan Aizpitarte. Crossing the border between action and representation, he invades the terrain of social policies and the aesthetic of the masses. In his latest works, play and fiction are imposed as ways of communication, introducing the public as part of his works.
Interested in acting on different scales, he investigates and intervenes in urban territories through his actions in and on the public space, allowing us to question the contemporary world through participatory social activism and the processes of media appropriation. At the same time, his videographic works, after an apparent formalism, introduce these same elements from a more introspective position. He has worked on projects about social contexts and tourism, such as "Benidorm, Benidorm" and has started "Ciutat de vacances" with a residency at Arts Santa Monica: Tourism Interpretation Centre (August, 2016).
Among his latest exhibitions, "Souvenirs" (Maior Gallery, 2018) and "Turismoak" (Sala Koldo Mitxelena, 2018).
