  • After the End of the World

    After the End of the World

    "After the End of the World" is an exhibition about the planet of 2017, irreversibly transformed into an Anthropocene planet after two centuries of human intervention in natural systems. But it is also an exhibition about how we will reach the world of the latter half of the 21st century, and about our society's responsibility to the generations who will be born and grow up in it. The project brings together voices from the various disciplines of creation and thought; together, artists, filmmakers, novelists, playwrights, architects, designers and scientists will imagine scenes, stories and escape routes to the different possible worlds that we can build, according to the decisions we make in the coming years—decisions in which we are all much more than mere spectators.

  • MACBA collection. Beneath the surface

    MACBA collection. Beneath the surface

    MACBA Collection. Beneath the Surface brings together works that focus on the problems deriving from representation and its limits, as well as the relevance and incidence of the artist and art in contemporary society. Although from different conceptual and formal approaches, many of these pieces share references to Conceptual art, forms derived from Minimalism and a contemporary fascination with material and surface. Beneath the Surface, and hence the title, examines the interest in aspects beneath which lie contents of a very different nature. It is worth mentioning the performatic component that permeates some of the works.

    The exhibition is integrated by works of various formats and typologies by artists such as Ignasi Aballí, Antoni Tàpies, Lucio Fontana, Karla Black, Art & Language, Angela de la Cruz, Derek Jarman, Latifa Echakhch, Félix González-Torres, Charlotte Posenenske, Rita McBride, Gregor Schneider, Doris Salcedo and Michelangelo Pistoletto, among others.
