Barcelona receives, remakes and emits


ON THE WAVELENGTH, NEGOTIATING IDENTITIES: There are many parabolic antennas on the rooftops of Barcelona and with these the city’s most recent citizens can sustain their connections with their areas of cultural origin. Internet access and satellite television today facilitate the diffusion of cultural ideas, beliefs and representations in a global manner. However, coexistence and the reformulation of different imaginaries are resolved in each city in a unique manner. If profound social breaks do not impede it, a metropolis like Barcelona represents a catalyst of privileged innovations because of the density and variety of contacts produced within it.

 
 

But for these new contributions to act as such, they must be able to be introduced in a satisfactory manner within the city’s own cultural trajectory. It is within this innovative dialogue that the media and creative diffusion platforms promoted by migrant groups can acquire a relevant role.
