28 Sept 2005-29 Jan 2006. The writers, intellectuals and artists who fled Barcelona in January 1939 ahead of Francos advancing troops are given voice in this fascinating exhibition at the Centre de Cultura Contempornia de Barcelona (CCCB) in the heart of the Raval district. The experience of exile, from the refuges in the south of France or the concentration camps hastily put up on beaches and wasteland, to emigration to the Americas, is documented through novels, stories, poetry and memoirs. Filmmaker Joaquim Jord has also made a documentary recreating some of the most emotive moments of exile: the crossing of the Spanish border, the arrival in the Americas and the impact of the refugees on the host countries of Mexico, Chile and the Dominican Republic. Literatures of Exile is accompanied by a series of installations by visual artist Francesc Abad to illustrate some of the stories recounted in the exhibition. Admission 4.40, concessions 3.30, under 16s free. Tues, Thurs, Fri 11.00-14.00 and 16.00-20.00, Weds & Sat 11.00-20.00, Sun & public holidays 11.00-19.00.
