The Catalonia International Prize was created by the Generalitat in 1989 to recognise and stimulate creators, to offer Catalans examples of the highest quality and requirements in all respects, and to place Catalonia on the world stage of major international prizes. It is awarded annually to persons who have made a decisive contribution with their creative work to the development of cultural, scientific or human values in the world.
With this exhibition the CCblanquerna commemorates the award winners during the 25 years of the Catalonia International Prize and recognises the task undertaken by the members of the jury through manuscripts and photographs of great historical value. Writers, scientists, musicians, philosophers, economists, artists, activists, etc. have been awarded the prize, which has given Catalonia a place on the world stage of major international prizes.
The exhibition includes pictures of the winners and their letters and documents from the jury. The photographs are by Eugenio, Miquel González, Jordi Bedmar and Rubén Moreno. Visitors can also see an audiovisual, which includes pictures of the prize-giving ceremonies, interviews with the two deputy chairmen of the prize, Baltasar Porcel and Xavier Rubert de Ventós, and a look at of all the prize-winners.
