Description/Abstract

A 208 page co-edited publication of 6 essays from Spanish historians, anthropologists, artists and designers that locate this project within a framework of history, cultural change, social politics and contemporary visual arts/design.

Three separate workshops/projects are documented here instigated by Ed D’Souza in collaboration with the Design School Elisava. Workshops conducted with Elisava students have presented work in public spaces over a three-year period in the Raval district of Barcelona. The workshop/project aims were to promote cultural exchange and dialogues between the Asian immigrant population of the Raval and the wider city in a period of time that the Raval has transformed through migratory change.

This publication looks at how the overlapping areas of social science and art/design expression could contribute to better social understanding of a migrant community as part of a wider issue of the forces of globalisation through the context of the city.

Edited by Robert D’Souza and Daniel Cid including written contributions from Robert D’Souza, Daniel Cid, Félix Pérez-Hita, N. Paricio, A. Pujol and Garcia Bargados.
