This round table brings together the team of curators behind the exhibition Encounters with the 1930s (Museo Reina Sofía, 3 October 2012 - 7 January 2013), to give the audience the chance to learn about the research process and the dialogue that have arisen from this dynamic rereading of the 1930s, which reveals the links between the temporary exhibition and a broader reinstallation project involving the Museum's Collection, undertaken to mark the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Guernica.
Organising an exhibition that covers a decade of art activity, especially a decade that tried to bring together different media and cultural contexts, depends on the work of a team of researchers willing to commit themselves to ideas received from the past but also willing to accept the challenge of posing new questions from a position open to the possibilities of interpretation and critique.
