ROC BLACKBLOCK - “WITH OUR HANDS”, INTERVENTION IN LA TEIXONERA, BARCELONA

BIG WALLS , video , newsletter | Senyorerre | 13-11-2019

Last July, the artist Roc Blackblok intervened this wall in the Horta-Guinardó neighbourhood of Barcelona.


This wall is a revendication of the phenomenon of self-construction, key in the growth of the neighbourhood in the 60’s, when people coming from everywhere decided to settle there. You can see a family building their own house and the wall is not only claiming the history of the area, but also highlighting the role of women.


The mural was inaugurated in September and was born from a community initiative. The neighbours actively participated in the process, including with the choice of the sketch.
