Texts, prints and unpublished works of Joan Brossa, Joan Ponç and Modest Cuixart can be seen from today at the Mayoral Gallery of Barcelona thanks to the exhibition “Dau al Brossa”, in which the figure of the artist is claimed and offer “many ingredients to see it differently.”

Bordons focuses on the time of the magazine Dau al Set, between the late forties and the fifties of the last century, and in his relationship with Joan Brossa other contemporaries.
In order to display these “dialogues” has enjoyed the complicity of the philosopher and art critic Dau al Set group, Arnau Puig, the last testimony of this artistic movement, and with input from the art museum, which is preparing a major exhibition on the artist 2017.
The exhibition begins with some copies of “Nocturns Encontres”, considered the first visual poems of Brossa, a man of theater and poet, and a copy of the book “Em va fer” is also shown, with texts strongly influenced by conversations Dau al set group had with the Brazilian consul of the time in Barcelona, Joao Cabral de Melo, who had Marxist ideas.
The exhibition is the culmination of other organized by the Mayoral Gallery in recent months about Dau al Set, shows for the first time seven unpublished engravings of Joan Ponç, three of which, at the back, there are texts Brossa, which they had been stored in a folder so far.
While Ponç is inclined to draw strange creatures like demons, and strokes that refer sex scenes, Brossa invents words and build sentences difficult to understand.
Another striking piece is another unpublished engraving Cuixart with a text Brossa could be around 1947, also invented words like “Catasques” and focuses on the nails.
