World Press Photo Exhibition 2019

The World Press Photo Exhibition 2019  (until May 27) again makes Barcelona one of the first cities in the world to display the winning photographs in this prestigious photojournalism award and the winning works in the Digital Storytelling Contest.

This is the fifteenth edition of this international exhibition organized by the Photographic Social Vision Foundation.

Under the slogan “The stories that matter”, the winning works are mostly unpublished in our country.

Parallel to the exhibition, and developed by the Educational Area of the Photographic Social Vision Foundation, you can find an extensive program of activities and guided visits that enrich the understanding of current events and the functions, values and challenges of photojournalism.

Among them, a projection of the winning works of the Long and Short Format categories of the Digital Narrative competition open to the public in the CCCB auditorium.
The exhibition of the winning photographs, which began the world tour in Amsterdam, can be visited throughout the year in more than 100 cities around the world and 45 countries, reaching a global audience of more than 4 million spectators.

The World Press Photo 2019 contest in figures: The 140 winning photographs of this edition were chosen among the 78,801 images submitted to the contest, made by 4,738 international photographers and photographers.


The exhibition Quantum (until September 24) gives us the keys to understanding the principles of Quantum physics, and it does so through the joint creative work of scientists and artists.

The project invites the public to browse reely, to awaken their curiosity, and to critically evaluate the new paradigms of modern science.

Quantum physics describes the fundamental laws of the world that remain hidden from the senses.

It is the human theory that most accurately describes nature today. In many respects, it is a surprising theory, subject to criticism and of great philosophical scope.

First, ten artistic projects show how the impact of quantum physics goes beyond the realm of science. Then, nine windows introduce laboratory research work and present visitors with the intellectual achievement represented by the theories of physics in contact with the scope of advanced experiments.

The union of these two itineraries, the artistic and the scientific, creates a multifaceted scenario that raises new questions and connections, helping us to comprehend an apparently invisible reality and the impact it has on our lives.

Quantum will awaken your curiosity and surprise you!

We hope you find these two samples so interesting and you can enjoy them during your stay at our Hotel Continental Barcelona and Hotel Continental Palacete.
