    Hanne Darboven is an artist that has delved into the languages of conceptual art and minimal art, which have opened new formal possibilities for expression in the second half of the century. Her numerical series and series of drawings have filled the rooms of many exhibitions and many museums, but her serialism is very different from the one found in the work of other minimalist artists who have also used numerical progressions, such as Sol LeWitt. In this exhibition we are going to find a set of series related to Darboven's everyday life, at home and at work.

    The year of construction of the Palacio de Cristal, 1887, is also the year of many events such as the construction of the Eiffel Tower, the birth of Le Corbusier, the invention of the gramophone ... a century in which the production conditions change, industrial production starts, and objects, that start losing their specificity because of the mass production, led to the emerge of some ideas like inner monologue, free verse or more open forms of theater.

    For Amos Gitai, the documentary is human archaeology, whereas fiction is architecture. In this exhibition, the Middle East, his parents, and his family memories intermingle with his oeuvre, transcending into physical, audiovisual space, as well as dealing with the multilayered reality which conforms the current sociopolitical landscape.

The exhibition Elly Strik.

    In the following video the curator of the exhibition, Jean-François Chevrier, and the Director of the Museum, Manuel J. Borja-Villel, explain the ways in which artists endeavoured to transform the idea of the biographical account and broke with the conventions of biographism to elaborate freely on the basis of certain elements taken from their own life history.
     
    The exhibition Biographical forms. Construction and individual mythology reviews the narrative dimension of art in its relationship with literary manifestations. The selection of works analyses the binomial “life and work” as well as the identity and biography construction mechanisms that operate throughout 20th century artistic activity.

    Armando Montesinos, curator of the exhibition, explains in this interview the keys of Idea: Painting-Force. The works of Alfonso Albacete, Miguel Ángel Campano, Ferran Garcia Sevilla, Juan Navarro Baldeweg and Manolo Quejido, dating from 1978 to 1984, comprise the proposal put forward in the exhibition in Palacio de Velázquez, Parque del Retiro. They carried out this activity at the height of the crisis affecting the modern movement and the idea of the avant-garde. Plus, they were working in Spain, in a setting that, on the hinge between the 70s and the 80s, was experiencing some newly-arrived democratic liberties and whose artistic scene had derived from the dominant acritical formalism to the emergence of the market and the aesthetics of success.
