Perich (1941-1995). Humor with cat's eyes.
From March 5 to August 16, 2020
Jaume Perich was one of the most incisive, influential and popular comedians in this country. With a feline gaze, penetrating and indocile, Perich portrayed our society during the last third of the 20th century. On February 1, 2020, it will be twenty-five years since his death, and even today his lucid and rebellious vision remains in force with unusual force.
His penetrating humor is capable of illuminating from the most banal to the most complex issues, always from an unequivocally progressive and strongly politicized point of view.
The Borne CCM wants to vindicate his figure, his work and his legacy, a legacy that the family has left to the Historical Archive of the City of Barcelona. Thus, in 'Humour with Cats' eyes' you can see a very important amount of original drawings and personal documentation that had never come to light before.
This exhibition also aims to evoke the profession of press cartoonist and become a clamor for freedom of expression. Perich is a paradigmatic figure who, fighting against censorship, bitingly portrayed the world around him and at the same time managed to reveal, through laughter, the weak points of a system and a society loaded with problems and contradictions.
Temporary exhibition co-produced with the Historical Archive of the City of Barcelona and curated by Jaume Capdevila-KAP.
In addition to the exhibition, we also recommend 4 debates in which we will talk about everything that surrounds the world of the graphic cartoon, limits, freedoms, etc. If you want to know more about these forums:
