The process of urban transformation in Bilbao goes through the assimilation of a globalised neoliberal economic model. We propose a materialist aesthetic analysis of the landscape to reveal how art and creativity play an important role in this hegemonic process. In the new Bilbao, art and large cultural infrastructures are a fundamental tool not only for the production of space under capitalist logics, but also for the construction of a new bourgeois public sphere that invisibilises class conflicts under a new dominant common sense.
