Abstract:

This chapter explores contemporary visual culture in Barcelona with a particular focus on puppet theatre, which has been significant in the development of Catalan movement towards independence since the last days of the Franco regime. The chapter will centre on Barcelona itself as a concrete locus of identity negotiation, and on the body as the specific site of that negotiation, through its presence in carnivalesque performance or by its absence, fragmentation or imprint.
