As part of the <18 programme, the Museum Reina Sofia offers its younger public an exhibition room and workshop experience, within the framework of the Biographical Forms. Construction and Individual Mythology exhibition, which runs from November 27, 2013 to March 31, 2014. The various possible connections between art, life, creation and narrative are dealt with through the young people’s own experiences and input, bearing in mind the range of possibilities explored by the artists to communicate stories of life through plastic representation.

The project, which was conceived and developed alongside young people, begins with a new look at the concept of biography, to try to analyse how it can transcend the straightforward narrative implicit in the word’s etymology (‘bios’ meaning ‘life’, and ‘graphia’ meaning ‘writing’) in order to become a driving force behind creativity applied to plastic arts.  

Exploration of the works on show combined with a dynamic of active participation and workshop-based production of alternative biographies using artistic language in unexpected media will enable the teenage participants to analyse the role of memories in the construction of their biography and to see how the path of each person’s life crosses other people’s.
