Ruïnes Modernes, FAD. Convent dels Àngels, Barcelona
The exhibition ”Ruïnes modernes, una topografia de lucre” as reflected in the homonymous book, published by Ambit , grows out of a body of ongoing research that started in 2010 with the exploration of leisure worlds, ghost towns and landscapes of profit. The collection of ruins is but a personal selection of the sixty building developments that were portrayed and investigated during a 10,000 kilometre journey over a period of two years. The information accompanying the photographic inventory proceeds exclusively from property developers, municipal archives and Official State Gazettes.
