Joan Brossa's poetry skills, able to transgress language and conventional poetic forms in order to lead his work to its utmost simplification and the limits of language, was also put at the service of memory, combat and the revolt through humor. Clearly pro-Catalan independence and left-wing, Joan Brossa (Barcelona, 1919-1998) created poetry during the Franco regime of a social and political leaning which was highly critical of the dictatorship's religious and political power. El Born Centre de Cultura i Memòria is staging an exhibition that brings together a selection of the literary and visual poems that best represent his critical perspective.
