  • Saber-toothed tigers and mastodons. The megafauna of the Miocene period

    Saber-toothed tigers and mastodons. The megafauna of the Miocene period

    In the Cerro de los Batallones archeological site, located in the current Madrid region, fossils have been found of mastodons and large predators who lived there 9 million years ago. These are animals which are now extinct and the saber-toothed tiger is one notable example. Through the paleontological remains found in this exceptionally well preserved site, the Cosmocaixa is offering us a journey to the past to learn about the fauna which previously populated our lands, such as the giant tortoise, the mastodon, and giraffes and horses which we no longer see in today's world.

  • Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress

    Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress

    The work of the German artist Charlotte Posenenske (1930-1985) was brief but intense. She developed a form of mass produced minimalism in response to the social and economic concerns of the time, eschewing the art market and rejecting conventional formal and cultural hierarchies. The MACBA is now displaying the "Work in progress" exhibition, bringing together works by Posenenske from 1956 to 1968, from her first drawings and paintings to her aluminum wall-reliefs and her last and best-known modular sculptures. An exhibition that was previously in Beacon, New York and which will continue touring across Europe.

    Camera and city. Street life in photography and cinema

    By means of a wide selection of photographic and audiovisual works we can observe how photographers and filmmakers have dissected the metropolis and how they have set out different scenes of urban life. The city is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for these artists and experiences in the big city give rise to the essential conditions of modernity. Aspects such as war, reconciliation, protests and extremely diverse stories all take a starring role in this exhibition by the CaixaForum which features collections from the Centre Pompidou and photographs and footage from Spanish collections.

  • Eluard and Picasso

    Eluard and Picasso

    The friendship between Picasso and the surrealist poet Paul Éluard was strong and unbreakable. Following the death of Apollinaire, both men got together to share and exchange ideas and opinions. The premature death of Éluard, after twenty years of friendship, was a major blow for the painter who had published a book months earlier with a series of the poet's drawings that featured a beautifully written prologue by Éluard himself. The Picasso Museum examines the relationship of both of these artists through Éluard's books and poetry and his art collection, as well as Picasso's portraits and drawings of the poet and his wife Nusch. We will also come across photographs by Man Ray and Brassaï and correspondence and documentary films narrating the meetings between the two friends.

  • America Sánchez - Modern Classic Jazz Tropical

    America Sánchez - Modern Classic Jazz Tropical

    The graphic designer America Sánchez has had ties to Barcelona for over 50 years. His eclectic style makes him difficult to define, therefore the title of this exhibition staged at the Palau Robert comes from a conference that Sánchez himself held in 2010 and where he affirmed that his style was comprised of these four concepts. This exhibition explores the artist's work and other pieces from various city institutions, given that Juan Carlos Pérez Sánchez, who later became America Sánchez in honor of his mother, is inextricably linked with Barcelona.
