Arxivo Bolaño (The Bolaño Archives) 1977 – 2003. An exhibition relating to the Chilean author in the CCCB

The exhibition, an exploration of the biographical and literary world of the author of “The Savage Detectives” can be seen from the 5th of March to the 30th of June

Next June will see the tenth anniversary of the disappearance of Roberto Bolaño, the requisite Chilean author who was based in Barcelona. The CCCB exhibition, titled “Arxivo Bolaño 1977-2003” is dedicated to the author of such critically acclaimed novels as The Savage Detectives and 2666 and his infrarealist poetry and includes presentation of unpublished material from inherited archives in an attempt to provide details about the author’s years in Catalonia, where he spent half his life.

 
One of the aims of the exhibition is to involve the visitor-reader in detective-style games wherein they take on the role of a police inspector who uncovers clues as the visit progresses. Thematically, the project is based around three central ideas that define the world of the author. While these are sometimes difficult to discern, the first covers the geographical area where Bolaño developed the majority of his writings, including Barcelona, Gerona and Blanes. The second traces his literary works in chronological order, and the third outlines a more intimate dimension of the writer including his routines and the multiple extra-literary involvements which would eventually provide sustenance for his autofiction...
 
The exhibition also coincides with the sixth biennial edition of Kosmopolis. Aside from this tribute, and among many other activities, the literary festival also proposes a quantum leap into current British science and science fiction graphic novels, a confrontation between televised series and film.
