The Palau Robert remembers and pays tribute to the Argentine photographer with the exhibition called 'I Don't Whisper, I scream'.
On June 22nd, the Argentine photographer Carlos Bosch died in Buenos Aires at the age of 75. In the words of the organizers of the recent exhibition these days at the Palau Robert, he was the most important graphic journalist, representative and influential in the media of Catalonia and Spain from 1976 to 1987. The exhibition, open until November 15th, is called I Don't Whisper, I scream, referring to his photograph being an uncompromising look, and is focused on the years of the Spanish Transition. Bosch himself was collaborating on his preparation with Manel Sanz and Paulina Flores, the curators, but his sudden death makes the exhibition an act of remembrance and homage to the author of snapshots.
Visitors can see 62 photographs structured in three sections. In the titled Life Everyday is topics related to immigration, the Catholic Church or death, as well as the consequences, still in the ‘80s of the Civil War. In the Fascism section, concentrated images are of the
far-right in Madrid and Paracuellos or the attack against the magazine El Papus. Finally, in the Catalonia section there are issues such as the recovery of the street, culture or images of political and union representatives. The sample is complete with newspapers and magazines of the time, donation documents to the Generalitat and reference books for Carlos Bosch.
