Borja Bagunyà

Writer, co-founder of the Bloom School, and editor of the magazine CARN DE CAP

He is a writer and lectures in Literary Theory and Comparative Literature at the University of Barcelona. In 2004 he published his first fictional work, Apunts per al retrat d’una ciutat (Notes for a Portrait of a City, Arola Editors) and in 2007 won the Mercè Rodoreda Prize for Defensa pròpia (Proa), a volume of short stories that was awarded the Best New Author Prize by the television programme QWERTY. Plantes d’interior (Indoor Plants, Empúries, 2011), his third book, inspired the director Carlos Marques-Marcet to work on a script based on one of the short stories in the volume, La perspectiva adequada (The Proper Perspective). His latest work is Els angles morts (Blind Spots, Periscopi, 2021), a widely acclaimed literary project that delves into the cesspits of a crisis-ridden university world while also tackling the ankylosed foundations of literature.
