The club opened its US headquarters on the twentieth floor of an elegant building of Park Avenue, within walking distance of Chrysler Building, Rockefeller Center and the Empire State Building
In Manhattan they run every day so many things that is very difficult to get the attention of the cameras, but the Football Club Barcelona is a global reference and the feeling last night was that you were waiting for some time. In fact, the local council has turned to the club, and the Empire State Building will tonight welcome to the club brightening with the Blaugrana colors.
The US ambassador in Spain, James Costos, who moved from Madrid expressly; Councillor for Education in New York, Carmen Fariña, the police chief, Bill Bratt, and the commissioner of Major League Soccer, Don Garber, have wrapped the president, Josep Maria Bartomeu in the opening ceremony of the office, installation of 250 square meters has swanky neighbors, the headquarters of JP Morgan without going too far. “We are here because the club wants to be global,” the president said. Then Ronaldinho chute and scored.
The strategic location of the blaugrana embassy is because the objective settling in Manhattan is essentially commercial. The draft bill foresees the board billion in 2021, and so far the income does not exceed 700, so you have to find money anywhere. As television rights are negotiated and collectively, the club can only aspire to increase their income by getting new regional sponsorships and prestige achieved by the football team contributes to US goods brands are interested in joining the club’s image.
The good image of the club is mainly due to the good results obtained in the last decade, but also that identification with the noble values of sport and solidarity that began with the incorporation of the Unicef logo on the shirt.
The main objective of the office is obviously commercial Vice President Manel Arroyo- He points but we are a worldwide reference of how we work and it is obvious that the same thing we do at home, ie, worry about the social aspects and training children will also be an important development in the US “task. Vice President Arroyo will be the institutional supervisor of the blaugrana US embassy lead by Arno Trabesinger and Gerard Guiu. And yesterday Arroyo presented the project to US Barca about fifty representatives of multinational companies such as Morgan Stanley, Black Rock, CAA, Van Wagner, KPMG, Telefonica, Abertis, Bein Sports, Price Waterhouse and Coopers, Johnson Johnson, RCA Records and Clyde Co. The lunch was held at the exclusive Club 21, where the most legendary figures of American equestrian riders wore a T-shirt for the first time a football team.
However, the most fun and endearing footballing day was the day that was organized at a school in the Bronx, with hundreds of children with blaugrana kit disputing the ball with Ronaldinho and Røddik Line Hansen, star women’s team. Fascinated kids but mothers and teachers they were not less. He was also Hristo Stoichkov, who was presented as a dark suit unnoticed spent more children, but not reporters. “Barca is the best club in the world and said his heart is open to everyone”. Indeed, in the morning in the Bronx, at noon at the Club 21 and evening at 250 Park Avenue. “Visca Barça” shouted the vice president of social area Jordi Cardoner and everywhere got the answer. “Visca!”

Highly selected ‘preemergence’ creators made stays at multipurpose Espronceda center, where they can live, produce and present
The wins Henrik and Holger Sprengel, along with two Italian artists, hold an art center in Barcelona as discreet as unusual. The Center pays Espronceda stays creative young artists and exhibitions of half the world, authors ‘preemergence’ already despunten but have not yet made their way into the difficult market of contemporary art. “Our main goal is to bring artists from outside Barcelona so they can show their art to the public here and take with new contacts in international cultural sector,” explains Holger Sprengel as normal.
He, like his brother, is a multireincidente entrepreneur who has opened several successful online and offline -restaurants Vietnamese businesses, tourists rental scooters, video games, books … customizable – and settled eight-year-twelve in the case of Henrik- in the Catalan capital. They have always been interested in creativity, but plans to open a cultural center arose in 2013 following an unexpected opportunity. His friend and partner, Elia Sabato, also Italian artist living in Barcelona, met by chance a set of old workshops Navas neighborhood (Sant Andreu) who started reconverted into ateliers of artists. “We learned that they had been released three ships and decided to rent them to rehabilitate, was very spontaneous!” He laughs. They are in an alley that has no official name not appear in Google Maps. Being perpendicular to the street Espronceda, just call ‘passage Espronceda’. Tenants of this hidden oasis just open their studios to the public and prefer not to attract attention, aware of the serious shortage of comprehensive and affordable spaces in Barcelona.
These three car repair shops are now a multifaceted cultural space which also adopted the name of the street and poet, well soundproofed and for various uses. A ship contains apartments in which artists are housed. Opposite are the large kitchen, which acts as a shared living for residents and can accommodate from gastronomic events to yoga sessions. On the other hand, there are studies-from painting, sculpture, multimedia … – in which artists produce new works. And finally there is the ship of the gallery, which exhibited before returning home.
The usual profile “guest,” explains the German businessman, is a foreign author of around thirty, that begins to live his talent but still sells little work. Visiting Barcelona can last from two to twelve weeks, but usually lasts four or five. The creators self-manage their schedules and tasks-codesign and the center exposure assumes the dissemination of the event, making the catalog and “comisariado”- and if they want, can also visit the city with the scooter that serve them. “At first we feared that spend the day at the beach, but no way, we are surprised that demonstrate the enormous productivity,” says Sprengel to the evil-minded. “They are aware that this will be a striking point on your resume and important people come to the shows, do not want to fail,” he adds.
Although not close the door to welcome artists who are self-financing the stay, with an estimated cost of 950 euros per month according to the website of the center, only in English, they do not promote this route. “We prefer to make a very hard choice, very good people come and scholarship us,” responds Sprengel. With hardly advertise, they receive dozens of requests. They usually choose to recipients personally, but sometimes rely on the criterion of professional juries, such as the prestigious Venetian Laguna Art Price competition: between the four prizes they can choose the winners is a free stay in the Espronceda. The College of Art in London, added, also want to send them a couple of students who choose half.
Alejandro Martin, curator and collaborator of the center as commissioner, adding that just closed a deal with New York Artist Pension Frost, the largest collection of contemporary art in the world: “We have chosen one of their recommended residences, which involves dissemination more than 2,500 artists and many requests to come to Barcelona “. They also maintain good ties with Italy, for example with the University of Fine Arts in Rome and the association of art critics I Martedi Critici through the fourth partner in this adventure, artist and researcher Tarsitano Savina, Italian living in Brussels .
The artists “guests” are the hospitality of Espronceda two ways. On the one hand, they give one of the works that have been created in Barcelona to the collection center, which is expanding gradually. On the other, if they sell part of the above, Espronceda gets a commission of 45% of the amount. “But the purpose of the stay is not selling, is to serve as a catalyst for his career,” says Sprengel. “And in general, it sells very little: a table, two … or none,” he admits. Prices are not for millionaires -there original work by 300 or 400 euros, but local demand is minimal: “The reality is that art is bought in Barcelona, is not like Madrid or London, this market is not developed and that’s too bad for artists “he stresses.
The Espronceda is one of the areas of relationship and social life of the community dynamics ‘expat’ of Barcelona, mainly formed by young professionals Westerners. The networking loved all leisure activities in these circles, whose frank languages are English and Spanish. Instead, the relationship with the local sociocultural fabric runs at half speed. In the case of contemporary art, for example, Espronceda not maintain any link with the very close and pioneer Ivanow Nau, a former factory converted into a cultural container.
In late February, due to local contact Alejandro Martin, the Espronceda host for the first time in its three-year history a sample of authors from Barcelona and Catalonia, from Hangar and the Faculty of Fine Arts at the UB. “We started very focused on building international ties and bring artists from outside, but now we want to connect with centers and creators of here,” Martin explains. Another line of work over the medium term stays for commissioners and curators and art critics.
The last artist who has exhibited in Espronceda has been an exception in every way possible. Kazakh Tolkyn Sakbayeva, 25, has spent five months producing new work in the Espronceda, but lives with his sister in an apartment in the city since mid 2013. His style is inspired by Impressionism and Cubism – chose Barcelona years of study here Picasso and since age 4 is devoted almost exclusively to drawing. Nevertheless, international criticism has started to focus on his other feature Tolkyn: born with severe cerebral palsy. It took a special exam to be accepted at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Almaty, his hometown.
His first exhibition with pieces for sale -more than 50- Espronceda has been in this fall and have extended until January 11. It has already sold half a dozen pieces and has some more “apalabradas”. The family in not dedicated to the art, his father is a scientist and his mother a teacher, but has turned to the vocation of the middle daughter, whom doctors and teachers had given so little hope of a future career. Both sisters and exercise of managers in English and Spanish touting achievements Tolkyn, name in Kazakh means ‘wave’. Coy and flirtatious, he receives praise from Alejandro Martin and her sisters naturally. “When no longer frustrated by not being able to paint small details-because of the motor limitations-, has found his own style,” explains the curator.
Coincidence or fate, these months Tolkyn has come into contact with the drivers of the first self-managed school Catalunya, Arcadia, with which it has begun to collaborate. It tests for them architectural barriers Ships Can Batllo and methodology for teaching art. In addition, 20% of sales in Espronceda exposure allocated to the project, which would open doors in 2018. “Participate in school as a workshop or as a teacher,” agrees Naomi Valero, adding that “it is essential” that the school Expect “adults concerning functional diversity”.
For its part, the family drives Sakbayeva a foundation in Kazakhstan, ARTolerance to help artists without resources or discriminated against for any reason. “We will open soon a kickstarter [an Online micropatronage] to fund new exhibitions and the work of the foundation,” he adds Togzhan Sakbayeva’s older sister.
Beginning of this year have reached Espronceda new guest artists. It is one of Marseille and Madrid Remy O. Manuel Leyva, who from 21 to 31 January will show their work at the exhibition The way you move. A half of January come two young Berlin artists, which lived in the ateliers with One and Leyva and also have their own exhibition scheduled for February.
In May he will give an artist talk, Ernesto Canovas. This 44 Barcelona moved a decade Great Britain, where he studied Fine Arts and triumphed with his paintings and drawings made, that the London celebrities buy at a good price in a gallery of exclusive Mayfair. Your resume accumulates numerous solo and group exhibitions and catalogs, awards and exhibitions. This, however, abroad. The ignorance of this author in his hometown has been Espronceda to invite to “make known” in Catalonia. “It will be three or four weeks here,” Sprengel progresses.

Santi Moix, the Catalan painter born in Barcelona in 1960, has spent many summers in Saurí (Pallars Sobirà), so when the villagers, during the festival, asked him if he would intervene Romanesque church, he said yes. Although he did not think that things come to port. But it came. Thus, the New York based artist got down to work. The immediate goal: to marry contemporary art with a church of the twelfth century to recover. The long-term objective “intervene ancient churches in the area that take years to reopen closed and create a route to attract public” he says.
When started thinking about the project, had very clear that wanted to work full of “color and energy ‘as far as possible from the” darkness and sadness “that sometimes evoke these places. And an intervention that would allow parishioners “feel good, let go and seek his inner world without imposing images.” In short, “a decoration full of flowers and nature that made reference to the environment where it is located.” The result Moix defined as “a cave of colors” and as “a church that is a garden”. All sprinkled with texts by J. V. Foix and Cavafy.
First he thought of projecting images and grow fungi to draw space. But the Centre de Restauració Bens Mobles de Catalunya suggested to paint al fresco. “The technique of techniques” that Moix had never used but now passionately defends “A very sophisticated technique that allows great freedom gesture that puts you in your place: the correction is not possible.”
The suggestion fresco painting was the only one received. For the rest he has had complete freedom, both by locals as the Bishop of Urgell. “I told them I would not make saints or virgins, but nature and light. And they were very receptive “he says.
Although there are some religious reference as the four evangelists and feet of Christ. For the last stage of the project, when there is funding left the representation of the resurrection: “A large flower in the apse in layers of petals made from porcelain and ceramic scatter light and color. Something very complicated technically, “he explains.
For now, he made like and attracts curious. “Every day I receive visits and I have to convince to return to the last minute. Since the walls make me time. ” And the cool does not support or corrections or delays.

A group of users of electronic currency works to implement in the Ciutat Vella in Barcelona, the model launched in Serrano Street in Madrid.
Create in Barcelona “Carrer” bitcoin. This is the aim of a group of lovers of digital currency users who want to launch an initiative to get the highest number of trades in the same area adopt this new form of payment. The drivers do not reveal what street in the Catalan capital has put the focus, but admit that the chosen Ciutat Vella district is the combination of three elements that can be key to meet the challenge. “It’s a central location with great commercial and very touristy concentration,” says one of its promoters, Borja Rossell, who is also CEO of BTCpoint, developer ATMs bitcoins.
Contact round the shops begin in the coming days. The promoters want to avoid the franchise and concentrate on small businesses that may be more susceptible to adopt electronic currency. According Rossell, cost-free for merchants since “there are many applications that allow purchases with bitcoins”. “Just a mobile or tablet,” he adds.
The volunteer group -are 15- have set a goal to have 20 to 30 business concentrates on a street or area – “less than 500 meters away from each others, qualifies Rossell” – which allow to operate with bitcoins Mobile World Congress to be held next March. A good showcase to gain followers, considering that those days Barcelona becomes the global epicenter of technology and innovation universe where the virtual currency part.
If successful, it will be the second time that the congress is used to publicize this new currency. In the last edition was installed provisionally an ATM bitcoins in the Diagonal Mar Shopping Centre decline since the council come to appreciate this initiative to “not be a legal tender and not being regulated”.
The action is a replica of the bitcoin community project that has developed in Madrid on Calle Serrano, known as the ‘Golden Mile’, which already can buy bitcoins in a few places. “Actually, the idea of the United States and the countries of northern Europe where more experience here in this type of action,” admits Rossell. The figures speak for themselves. According to the web coinmap.org in the Catalan capital there are only twenty merchants that accept bitcoins and, from a month ago, a single point where buy and sell -in FabCafé Barcelona within MOB- coworking space, an amount well below cities like London or New York, where the phenomenon of criptomoneda is more advanced.
For Alex Puig, technological and entrepreneurial expert bitcoins, the explanation to the discrete popularity in Spain and Catalunya lies in the “fear” and the need for us to “someone to give us explanations, protect us.” And the bitcoin, encrypted, global and volatile currency are beyond the control of banks, states and international organizations. “It’s an ingrained cultural issue and so the development of bitcoins, which is not regulated by anyone, is slower than elsewhere,” he says. According to him, the pulse of this digital currency could be taken to a hypothetical independence of Catalonia. “It recurrent think in a new country could adopt the 2.0 bitcoin as currency, but that would depend on the degree of confidence that had”.
Currency ‘at risk’
The bitcoins have on economic and political context your greatest ally. Your quote, for example, skyrocketed during the playpen of Cyprus last year.
Proponents see it as a real alternative and response to management that the troika has made the crisis. In recent times, with the emergence of new political parties Bitcoins We can have a circle, but is almost inactivo- has been speculated that the use of bitcoins extends leveraging the political situation, but Juan Ramón Rallo, Doctor of Economics and Director of the Instituto Juan de Mariana, is categorical in this regard: “the bitcoin has no ideology and if you have it would have a liberal pedigree”.
There where many see a solution, others are simply “a risk”. “Since its inception in 2009, there have been ups and downs and not really know why. Maybe is good, but can lead to speculators and speculation, and the absence of regulation, to make illegal transactions easier, “says Professor of Financial Economics at the UPF, Oriol Amat. According to him, their characteristics are very similar to other financial experiences that have ended badly, referring to the scandal of Philatelic Forum in 2006 left 500,000 affected by the scam of the seals. The European Banking Authority (EBA) a year ago and warned of the dangers associated with virtual currencies. Bitcoin is one of them, although there are more than a hundred.
“It is paradoxical alert when banks are being more interested in knowing how bitcoins work and adapt its operation to the protocols themselves,” says Puig. “For me the big mystery is the current financial system is very opaque and it is very difficult to access,” he concludes.

A museum in New York hosts 580 drawings and notes on dishes or menus | Cook says 1846 will El Bulli dinner one month a year and that will leave diners come out of a draw.
Between hammering and noise of drills, Ferran Adrià wander what will be the first exhibition of his drawings. Yes: the chef of the stars also drawn. “The quality of the line is not important. With this sketch-notes, a pencil, I was watching a plate. It’s what we call mental palate.”
In fact, the exhibit “Creativity Notes” entitled. Two days before the opening-today-is almost all set in the Soho building in Manhattan, which houses the The Drawing Center, considered the most relevant drawing gallery world.
In the center of the room, a photographic reproduction, life-size, of your file in Barcelona Carme Street. Hence they have left their 580 papers, which will be on display until 28 February, and in expressing ideas about dishes or menus, suggestions or concocted reflected intuitions. “This is an exhibition about our creative process.”
More Walking, Adrià talks. Rather than talking, thinking aloud. At the ritual greeting of these Antarctic days in New York – “does freezing cold,” they would say-great-grandmothers, a replica shrugged: “I do not worry about things I can not do anything.
Faced with framed pieces, makes comments like this: “The important thing is to understand the tomato, not tomato.” Or, “When the man was able to separate the white from the yolk, or just use the egg?”.
These drawings allow you to sort and visualize their ideas about the evolution of the kitchen, a difficult archeology for lack of evidence in this area of the beginnings of mankind.
In this skateboarding, building a waiting Bullipedia take them five to six years and with which expected to contribute online to better understand the eating thing. This task has a local factory Mèxic old street in the Catalan capital. From “in a couple of months there will be 70 to 80” people working.
But this effort finds its purpose in what he describes as the essential element of El Bulli and who have been engaged two years. It is an illustrated panel, already hanging on these walls, entitled “Map of Gourmet reproduction process.” Yesterday was presented. The de l’Hospitalet indicates that this is “the decoding of the genome of the kitchen” and its importance lies in paving the way for spreading techniques, products or ingredients from the online network. The art of the technology must be differentiated.
You have to clarify the origin of everything, and especially for this exhibition, stood at the snack bar by the Montjoi cove.
Amid both drawing and dishes with mold plasticine, which is the next step of experimentation pencil, a model appears in 3-D. In this white piece last of the famous restaurant and the future, that place that combine laboratory museum connects. “As was the waist to the beast, with this (exposure) in the middle, holding.
Adrià says its opening has been delayed to 2015. “I will not run,” he says. I called as El Bulli 1846, by the total number of dishes invented during restorative stage. This exhibition will travel to other U.S. cities, is accompanied by a 90-minute film by that name, 1846.
The new headquarters will have <MD+> 4,500 m 2 will have a campus, have a creative team of 40 people for a month a year offer dinner. “Yes-points-just a month is easy to understand is like a doctor who devotes 70% to consultation and 30% to research and says:..’ll Save from 90% research and 10% query “. The tables will be drawn 50% online and the other half will be for his philanthropic foundation.
Leading exposure assembly, Brett Littman, executive director of The Drawing Center. “The credit here, he had the genius of this exhibition, is what has brought order into my scraps of paper,” says the chef.
Littman Remember it all started in June 2010, the night he dined at El Bulli with his wife and another couple. Your friend is curator of Guggenheim. He calls it extraordinary experience: 37 plates, six hours and a half on the table.
Finally bought the book A Day at El Bulli. In his mind it was recorded the reproduced drawings. Once in New York, in early 2011, in an article for The New Yorker dedicated to desserts, discovered that Albert Adrià, his brother, he explained that he explained with pictures. “I understood that it was their lingua franca.”
Had the idea to send a letter and tell the cook the opportunity to do something. After certifying the prestige of Littman, Adrià replied via e-mail. In March 2011 met in New York and in June of that year, he returned to Barcelona Littman and discovered “treasure” hosted Carme street in Barcelona city.
“Not that Ferran is a cartoonist-holds responsible for the gallery, he is a chef. But as chef uses drawing as a creative way to start discussions, so we call notes creativity and not drawings of food. Their drawings are not extraordinary, but drawn as think.
A Littman was surprised by one thing found in each of the meetings. “Adrià always sat talking put the pen and paper on the table. And always made drawings or diagrams.”
