The city of horrors at CCCB
Exhibition Barcelona – Valencia – Palma: A History of Confluence and Divergence 

The CCCB (Contemporary Culture Centre of Barcelona) and the Department of Culture and the Media of the Generalitat de Catalunya will be presenting the exhibition “BVP”. The show looks at the confluences and divergences of three Mediterranean cities: Barcelona, Valencia and Palma.

These are three cities which, at many points in time, have walked in step or moved along the same lines of force, which becomes apparent when we evaluate their history and the way they have evolved in recent centuries. In addition to their common language, we find similarities in architecture and urban planning, a comparable human geography and an urban aesthetic that unites them, though each has conserved its particularities, with periods of greater distance and even confrontation.

The exhibition will showcase the present-day situation of Barcelona, Valencia and Palma, concentrating on two fundamental aspects: the urban and the human landscape.
Sections of the exhibition include: The City of the Future, Language, The Spectacle City, The Ugly City: Urban Planning Corruption and Tourism, The Hedonistic City, The Medieval City.
Check out the BVP's website, you can contribute to the exhibition and submit your own pictures and vote for the most horrible pictures among all the uploaded.
