Interruptions. 10 years, 1,340 metres consists of a large table on which are wooden models of two buildings in Barcelona: the house on Argenteria Street where Salvat-Papasseit died and the Raval tuberculosis dispensary.Joan Salvat-Papasseit, a Catalan avant-garde poet and revolutionary, was always optimistic about social change and fought in defence of education and culture as basic tools towards revolt and emancipation. In 1924, at the age of thirty, he died of tuberculosis in a dark and damp flat on Argenteria Street.Ten years later, in 1934 an during the republic, the GATPAC members Josep Lluís Sert, Joan Baptista Subirana and Josep Torres Clavé were commissioned by the Catalan government to design the first tuberculosis dispensary (1934-38) in the heart of the old red-light district as part of the programme to socialise hospital care and the fight against tuberculosis. The attempt was, however, violently ended in 1939 by the victory of fascism.This ten-year gap between the poet’s death and the building of the hospital becomes a tragic metaphor for the distance between desires and dreams and the possibility, always precarious, of their coming into being. The two models are placed apart, one at each end of the big table, emphasising the leap in time.
