Souvenir Barcelona


Edition of a collection of postcards that offer some alternative "souvenirs" (memories) to the stereotype, optimistic and amiable imagery offered by both private and institutional tourist publicity. In a perfect symbiosis of interests, for more than a century an image of Barcelona full of clichés has been built up: the highbrow, modern, colourful, Mediterranean, welcoming city, etc. - in short, a theme park that hides a history of marginalisation and misery, class struggle, bloody popular revolts and ferocious repression.
