Untill 16th of January 2010:
1909: photography, city and conflict.

Posted by: Hotel Curious at 2009-11-12

The Hotel Curious recomends you to have a little view of the history of Barcelona.

Here you can see the photographies taken during the first quarter of the 20th century in diferent places and diferent events in Barcelona.

You will find here some of the photos about the creation of what will become Catalunya. The first regional politic regroupment in Catalunya (la Liga Regionalista), and then the creation of the Mancomunitat de Catalunya (Commonwealth of Catalonia) which was the begining of the catalan province we know today.

Apart from those political acts, there was a revolt against the state military conscription in 1909. From the 25th of July and the 2nd of August, the people of Barcelona refused to enroll, and let their family, to go to fight in north africa. It resulted a lot of demonstrations in a quite way at the begining and finished in a civil battle against the army. At the end of the week few killed and loads of injured could be counted even some condamned to death or exil.
The photos show the fights, barricades and the churches in fire in the whole city.

You can see the exposition at the Photographic Archives of Barcelona (Plaza Pons i Clerch, 2, +34 932 563 420). From Monday to Saturday, 10am to 07pm uninterrupted. Bank holidays closed.
