Comunicado de los trabajadores del MACBA

Los y las trabajadoras del Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) nos sumamos a la llamada en defensa de las instituciones catalanas a raíz de la intervención de la Guardia Civil en las diversas sedes del Gobierno de la Generalitat de Catalunya. Esta actuación es un ataque directo a la democracia, a la libertad y al estado de derecho. Sin libertad no hay cultura y, por lo tanto, invitamos a todos y a todas las trabajadoras del sector a defender nuestros derechos y a participar activamente en las manifestaciones de protesta que se están llevando a cabo.

Brossa Poetry, at MACBA

► A survey of Joan Brossa’s complete oeuvre based on orality, the performative and anti-poetry, bringing together 800 works and abundant documentation, from his early books to his final visual experiments, as well as theatre, cinema and action art.

► The exhibition includes case studies and a visual recapitulation of his exhibitions from the 1980s, while placing Brossa’s production in dialogue with the work of Marcel Mariën, Ian Hamilton Finlay and Nicanor Parra, as well as including his collaborations with Miró, Tàpies, Portabella, Mestres Quadreny and Carles Santos.

► The poetry of Joan Brossa embraces actions, images and objects, so one of the challenges facing this exhibition is to link the oral and the performative to the conventions of the museum. For that reason, a group of performers will interpret the work of Brossa in the galleries during the exhibition.

► Curated by Teresa Grandas and Pedro G. Romero, the exhibition has been produced in collaboration with the Fundació Joan Brossa, making possible the inclusion of a vast selection of documentation, and with the support of Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) and the IRL Institut Ramon Llull.

Title: Brossa Poetry Opening: Wednesday 20 September 2017, at 7.30 pm Dates: 21 September 2017 to 25 February 2018 Organisation and production: MACBA Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona Curated by: Teresa Grandas and Pedro G. Romero
