This Thursday, at the old brewery Estrella Damm will be a presentation of the documentary "BCN Rise & Fall", perhaps, One of the most controversial topics in Barcelona spiritualized society - STREET ART. In addition to cultural and artistic bohemian youth, here you can meet the legends of Barcelona street art, such, как Aleix Gordo, The fish, Black Xupet, Dixon. And most importantly, of course, the film - fascinating pictures painted streets of Barcelona for the past 15 years. A nice bonus - beer from a recognized sponsor.
Street art in Barcelona has long been a free youth religion or, least, lifestyle. There is hardly one street from gotichesokogo quarter up to the suburbs, which has not yet passed the can and brush of street artists. Once upon a time is not necessary: sometimes it is banal to assert itself frazochki teens, and sometimes - true works of art, which could no problem to collect a crowd of fans in one of the most successful global contemporary art galleries. Many of these masterpieces has long been hidden under layers of paint new works, Unfortunately, not always the same successful, as the previous. To do this, and there was "BCN Rise & Fall". Artist Aleix Gordo and director Gustavo López Lacalle decided to tell and show, as he lived in Barcelona street art since its "golden age" to our days. The film collected a lot of documentaries, interviews of famous street artists, virtual tours and other interesting details of street art in the past 15 years.
Interesting, that the relationship of Barcelona street art and urban authorities during this time more than once jumped from a deep love to the fierce hatred. Today the situation has returned to "sweep" the city. The few times of crisis funds, that there is in the city budget, go, including, and to clean up the city walls of "rock art". I sincerely believe in their deliberate use. Otherwise, how to live without the famous Barcelona will pay off with a colorful balloon in Raval, huge monetary shark near Carmel bunker and futuristic composition with a chair in the wall in the Born district. For many, in fact the main purpose of a walk - to capture these amazing scenes of the city.
English subtitles for the film attached.
