Belchite/South Bronx, sponsored by the University of Massachusetts at Amherst Gallery, was a project initiated and supervised by Francesc Torres, who directed its video component in Spain and the South Bronx. The project and exhibition consisted of a six-channel twelve monitor video installation, a single-channel videotape and this book. It drew parallels between Belchite, a small town in the province of Zaragoza, Spain, which was completely destroyed by the opposing forces in the Spanish Civil War and left as a "half-hearted war memorial [which] quickly became a garbage dump", and the South Bronx--devastated in the aftermath of World War II by "white flight", the construction of the Cross Bronx Expressway and the numerous buildings burned down by both landlords and tenants.
