  • 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.

    Gyula Halász (1899 - 1984) from Hungary, better known as Brassaï, his pseudonym, was one of the photographers who undoubtedly redefined the potential of photography during the 20th century, as an artistic medium. Brassaï focused particularly on the city of Paris, the core concept of some of the most iconic and significant images.

    The work of Henri-Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec is instantly recognisable, with its swathes of strong colour, portrayals of a certain Parisian lifestyle at the end of the 19th century, and posters advertising everything from recitals to bikes. A pioneer of the post-Impressionist movement, he was extremely prolific and produced hundreds of works before his early death at 36.

    This exhibition at CaixaForum looks in the main at the artist's years in Montmartre, his nocturnal life and relationship with the cabarets and underworld of the French capital, through a series of paintings, posters and other items. After your visit to the show, it's well worth exploring the building of CaixaForum. Designed by celebrated Catalan modernista architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, it was originally a textile factory and featured a number of spacious halls that now lend themselves perfectly to exhibiting art. A guided tour is on offer, which includes a visit to the impressive rooftop.
