Go Up Columbus, 1982
Súbete a Colón (1982): Miralda and Benet Rossell, one of the Catalan artists living in Paris since the sixties, recorded the experience of walking up to the top of the monument to Columbus in the harbour of Barcelona, by using the scaffolding erected during the renovation of work and walking to the tune of the song by the same title by Trío Guadalajara. The recording was screened on the Colom-Tòtem video-monument in Barcelona in 1982.
