BCN Free Art 01: The Port and Barceloneta

Poble Sec Books, 2015 - 66 páginas

The idea for these guides sprang from hard times. Whether in boom or recession, art remains fundamental. But while free art is a great idea, not all great art is free. So this guide takes you places where there is no admission fee.

BCN Free Art 01: The Port and Barceloneta guides you around artworks on Barcelona’s waterfront and through the fishing neighbourhood of Barceloneta, describing the city’s history, the artists – such as Xavier Mariscal, JM Subirachs, Rebecca Horn, Juan Muñoz and James Turrell – who created these sculptures, and the stories that bring Barcelona alive.

The Barcelona Free Art guides inform without being academic, helping you enjoy Barcelona’s culture as you wander or cycle around town. Check out our other books at Poble Sec Books.

Sobre el autor (2015)

Kevin Booth began writing professionally while working in the theatre, penning English language learning plays including 100 Meters. Nowadays he writes contemporary and LGBT-themed fiction, often about Barcelona and its history, such as his first novel, Celia’s Room. He also writes about the city’s art and architecture in the BCN Free Art guides. Writing as K. Eastkott he has created “Seeking the Jewel Fish”, comprising Through the Whirlpool, Twilight Crosser and Lake of Stone, an environmentally focussed ocean fantasy exploring non-Eurocentric worlds.


Also a keen visual artist, he combines writing with work as a translator and editor. As a visual artist, Kevin Booth works in oils and mixed media. Born in Aotearoa New Zealand, he has lived in Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Madrid and London, though since 1988, Barcelona is the town he calls home.
