En construcción by Guerín monochrome footage

by Benjamin Fraser

This clip from José Luis Guerín' ambitiously lyrical pseudo-documentary incorporates historical footage of the port area in what would become one of Barcelona's most gentrified areas in the twentieth century. The American sailor wandering drunk through the port area and into the Catalan capital's medieval urban core functions as a precursor of the mass influx of tourists that would completely reshape Barcelona from the 1960s onward (and even Spain as a whole, under the Franco dictatorship, 1939-75).
