Squatters and Graffiti at “La Otra Carboneria”

The “Other Coal-house” describes itself as “A self-managed social centre, an open space for the neighbourhood and the city, occupied in civil disobedience to laws that perpetuate injust situations; from which to generate social activities such as debates, lectures, information points, artistic practices, workshops, knowledge exchange, etc.”

INVADER @ Carrer Cervantes, Barcelona (Near placa trippi / George Orwell Square)

Invader (born 1969) is a French urban artist who pastes up characters from and inspired by the 1978 arcade game Space Invaders game, made up of small coloured square mosaic tiles that form a space invader character mural. He does this in cities across the world, then documents this as an “Invasion”, with books and maps of where to find each invader.

Invisible Miles de Viviendas, Barceloneta

ya que tenemos que morir
que sea pues depués de haber vivido
no solos y desesperados como viejos románticos
sino como hombres, mujeres,
híbridos de ser mortal [e inmortal] que somos

(roughly translating as….)

Well we know that we will die
but that we will do so having lived
not alone and desperate like those old romanitcs
but as men, women and hybrids
knowing that we are mortal

we are thousands

… I’ll leave you with the poem which is still visible from the last remaining internal wall of what was the Miles okupa in Barceloneta (little Barcelona)…

    The battle for space in Barcelona: the ‘rose of fire’

    Beyond indignation and in the wake of a housing market crash, a series of daily battles are taking place on the streets of Barcelona over the use and purpose of urban space.

    Barcelona is a city entangled in urban conflicts. As one walks through the city’s streets, each housing block has at least a few esteladas (the flag symbolizing Catalan independence from Spain) hanging from its balconies; accompanied by banners denouncing hospital closures, education cuts, immigrant detention camps ,capitalism, or simple calls for a decent neighbourhood (“Volem un barri digne!”). While the colourful graffiti that beautifies the city’s otherwise bland, grey walls is more often than not accompanied by indignant slogans. “La vida es una passion inútil,” reads one singularly powerful example, “Life is a useless passion.”
