Espriu: I looked upon this land
To celebrate 100 years since the birth of Salvador Espriu, considered amongst the most influential writers and poets of 20th century Catalan literature, the CCCB in conjunction with the Catalan government presents an exhibition examining his life and work. The exhibition aims to reflect on Espriu's cultural and historical impact and give the viewer a deeper understanding of the man within the context of the times in which he lived.
The exhibition is divided into three parts offering visitors an insight into the main facets of Espriu's personality; the private, the social and the contemporary. The importance of his relationship with the Catalan people and his stance on local history and the future is seen through the lens of the mythical and symbolic, through untamed criticism and social transcendence.
