Passeig del Born amb Rec
Realization: José Manuel Pinillo on a caligrama of Joan Salvat-Papasseit
Inauguration: June 1, 2004
José Manuel Pinillo, former collaborator of the theater group La Fura and had participated with the Giant plastic group, had the idea of including the acts of the Forum of Cultures a kind of homage to poetry with Mapapoètic, a project consisting of 26 corresponding to many other poems in different places of the city action. In general, they were actions to a short life, but a few permanent vocation. The poems were chosen by a team consisting of the Pinillo own, Victor Nubla responsible for cross-cutting projects Forum, literary criticism Dolors Udina and Eduard Escofet, who ran the festival propost also by the Forum. Without wishing it was premeditated, all authors of selected poems were dead.
The first installation of Mapapoètic, opened on June 1, 2004 by the Deputy Mayor Jordi Portabella, was a mural on Passeig del Born, painted on the wall that faced the street Rec, where necessary caligrama poet reproduced Joan Salvat-Papasseit ants, which says: "Way sun / her friends routes / ants". He performed the same José Manuel Pinillo.
