Length: 20 min 37 s

 

“For La casa, we decided to work on a particular case reflecting the dynamics of competition in Badia del Vallès. The only ‘liberated’ flat in a town where 100% of the flats are social housing.” Near Barcelona, Ciutat Badia is a town that was born as a result of the influx of workers from southern Spain in the 1960s. Pedro G. Romero invites the flamenco dancer Israel Galván to move through every space of the only flat in the area that, due to a fraudulent law dating back to the times of Jordi Pujol, a former President of the Government of Catalonia, stopped being social housing and went into private ownership.

Gold does not take on any dirt. And gold, just are diamonds, is an exalted material. It possesses such a degree of abstraction that it encounters you –if you use it artistically– on an already exalted level.
