InformationSince the sixties, contemporary art has been associated with periodic crises. These events have not only affected art, they have had a global impact. From the self-reflective criticisms offered by modern painting to the efforts to make sense of a world that acts as a system of relationships subjected to constant change, this new exhibition of works from the MACBA Collection brings together previous examples of what we today call ‘systemic crises’.
The exhibition, which occupies three floors of the museum, takes the form of a sequence of six episodes or passages that can be read with relative autonomy. You will find works by: Lara Almarcegui, Judith Barry, Dara Birnbaum, Marcel Broodthaers, Joan Brossa, Hans Haacke, Öyvind Fahlström, Andrea Fraser, Sanja Ivekovi?, Gerhard Richter, David Lamelas, Angela Melitopoulos, Miralda, Robert Morris, Hélio Oiticica, Allan Sekula, Andreas Siekmann, Antoni Tàpies y Krzysztof Wodiczko, among others. The life and work of the psychiatrist Francesc Tosquelles (1912-1994) is also recovered, in the anniversary of his birthday.
