NO-RES is the chronicle of the end of Colonia Castells, the last remaining industrial workers’ neighbourhood in Barcelona. With the destruction of its low residential buildings, an entire way of understanding urban space vanishes. This is just one more case of gentrification in a city-brand that is both ashamed of its working-class past and striving to build up a lie, a facade behind which lurks ... nothing (the no-res). A work with hardly any words that portrays, through observation, daily life in an obsolete lifestyle that is dying off.
