The presence of inhabitants of Moroccan origin is now evident in many Catalan towns

An approach to Moroccan immigration

This exhibition can be seen at the Catalan History Museum until 19 February

This new temporary exhibition at the Museum of Catalan History aims to become, in the words of the museum’s management, “an instrument for critical memory, for mediation and for cultural democratisation, as well as place for intercultural dialogue”. With the title Of Morocco and of Catalonia. Living memory between immigration and new roots, curated by anthropologist and Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) professor, Jordi Moreras, the exhibition is an attempt at tackling the phenomenon of Moroccan immigration to Catalonia, which has become more and more visible in the last two decades though it actually began half a century ago.

On until 19 February, this exhibition underlines the contribution of this collective to the economic, social and cultural development of Catalonia. The museum considers that, “It’s the right time to explore the experience of a collective that is, at the same time, so present among us but so little known. By tackling this subject we will open up a space for discovery and learning, reflection and debate, awareness and satisfaction”. Nowadays, around 300,000 people of Catalan-Moroccan origin now live in Catalonia, a fifth of whom were born here.

Admission to the exhibition is free.
