Grandes éxitos (Greatest Heats)
A party hall of refined and decadent atmosphere which lived its years of fame in the 70s and now all of its splendour has been lost, yearns to recover its status.
The club, currently in its death throes and aware of its impending end, is trying to change, lying to itself night after night. A synthesis of the peculiar and the out-fashioned, dressed in velvet and served with a white shirt and a black bow tie.

Fundación "la Caixa" established FotoPres in 1982 to acknowledge the work of photojournalists. Subsequently, they implemented six grants for projects of national significance. Fosi Vegue has been awarded two of these grants, in 2005 and 2009.
The exhibition gathers the work of the three winners: Emilio Morenatti, Walter Astrada and Alfonso Moral, as well as that of the six photographers who were awarded the FotoPres grant: Lurdes R. Basolí, Marta Ramoneda, Aleix Plademunt, Mikel Aristregi, Jo Expósito and Fosi Vegue.
These projects were compiled in a catalogue published by the foundation.
