B_top started off as an experimental study on mobile vending  („top manta“) in Barcelona. It approached the „manta“, a form of illegalized, hyper-flexible, ambulant labour, as a platform to establish alliances between people, to collect stories about global migration and day-to-day survival as well as a technique of distribution. In 2005 the art collective BCNova! initiated a series of gatherings and workshops between mobile vendors, musicians, artists and other cultural producers that led to the creation of a music CD and a Zine. Both products have been re-inserted into the „black market“ and distributed for free by mobile vendors. For more see:
