"For almost a year I have been working on a videotape [...]. It revolves around a central leitmotiv in the visual representations of what it is known as Greater Bilbao: the journey down the length of the Ria (the river) from the heart of the great city out towards the sea. The journey outlined in Port of Bilbao? (a film dating from I920 attributed to the Azkona brothers) is inter-cut, opposed and deconstructed. Another dimension is added to the institutional and media representation of the demolition of the last cranes in Bilbao's Abandoibarra […]. It allows us to read the loss of physical spaces within the old industrial city - where social and class antagonisms were made visible - as a metaphor of the symbolic dissolution of the central character of the proletariat as social subject in the conflict between capital and labor under the classic Leftist view. [...] There are many ways to read and recount History. Almost always, the most suspect is that which is disseminated by those who control and impose the narrative mechanisms."
