LE CORBUSIER X JEAN GENET IN BARCELONA

MACBA, LE CORBUSIER & JEAN GENET IN BARCELONA

Le Corbusier and Jean Genet’s juxtaposed visions of Barcelona in the early thirties invite us to revisit a modernity that is close at hand, and return to a debate that remains relevant today. Le Corbusier scoured Barcelona’s city centre in order to diagnose and remodel the city. His proposed Macià Plan for a ‘New Barcelona’ implemented the hygienist principle as a means of eradicating social decay. Meanwhile, Jean Genet, who became familiar with the streets of the Barrio Chino, defended the marginal and amorphous identity of the district. His novel The Thief’s Diary, published in 1949, testifies to this vision. Modern rationalism and constructivism, dialogue with an exploration of the nocturnal life of the city and the power of the irrational.
