Jordi Borràs


A brief moment in the history of Catalonia summed up in pictures. The Catalan Revolt is simply this: spotlighting the autumn of 2017 and the referendum of 1st October.

The Catalan Revolt explains, in photographs, the events that marked a turning point in the country’s history: the referendum, the declaration of independence, the mass demonstrations, Spanish unionism and the far right on the streets of Catalonia, repression, prison and exile, the yoke imposed by article 155 of the Spanish constitution …

The whole exhibition consists of photographs of a very recent past which without a doubt has marked and will mark the future of a country that is hurtling towards an uncertain future, but with an undoubted desire for a break.
