This weekend Olot becomes the capital of literature, with the Festival MOT. Over thirty renowned authors will meet to debate and reflect on literature, under the theme ‘Written lives, writing lives’. The MOT aims to bring writers closer to their readers and transmit the idea that literature is important for their wellbeing, and offer a range of high quality events on a national and international scale.
Photography recommendations also take place in Barcelona, with the Foto Colectania exhibition ‘All photography is an enigma’ by French photo historian Michel Frizot. Open until 21st May.
Barcelona also hosts another cultural event this weekend,specifically, a visit to the past to Egyptian mytholoogy and the ritual of Osiris, through ‘Osiris, the Egyptian God’. You can see the exhibition at Museo Egipcio de Barcelona until June 2016.
And if you would like to enjoy a play, we recommend that you visit the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya. One of the most renowned plays which is currently being performed is ‘Professor Bernhardi’, an adaptation of the 1912 classic, which was banned for many years in Austria. In the play, a doctor’s complicated decision in a university hospital unleashes a series of consequences which will shatter the political and religious establishments of a country, which is obliged to take a stance.
