Picasso at the Hole

A final balance. Looking from the outside of the museum itself. Picasso in the hole, yes, if you want, digging a hole in reality. But also in the Picasso Museum of Barcelona in its context, in its own neighbourhood. Two dovetailed discourses, if it is possible.

Manuel Delgado treated the case of the Hole of Shame, an example of the urban planning speculation process and gentrification of the Barcelona neighbourhood of San Pedro, held up by an exemplary neighbourhood fight.
