    Activities Education

    One of Museo Reina Sofía’s objectives is to incorporate new strategies into its relationships with visitors: strategies that help visitors to understand and enjoy the content they see and also to conceive of the institution itself as a space for shared reflection. This will entail replacing the linear, one-way and exclusive narration with one that is more plural, in which the visitor’s contribution plays a decisive role and in which the art experience goes beyond mere contemplation.

    In order to move towards such a multiplicity of visions and to create this common space, the Museum has started a cultural education project. In this video, the team of cultural mediators explains the strategies, motivations, objectives and hopes of this innovative project that was launched just two years ago.

    The educational program has been made possible by the Fundación Banco Santander.

    This video on the set-up process of the exhibition Richard Hamilton (27 June – 13 October 2014) in the weeks prior to its opening shows the coordination between different teams in the Museo – from the curators to the conservators and assembly technicians – to install this complex and extensive exhibit. The piece by Juan Rayos, commissioned by the Museo, reflects the wide variety of mediums, genres and themes the artist used in over 250 works.

    Acting in Shadows is an activity that aims to expand the artistic experience into a field of bodywork and theatricality. Created by Teatres de la Llum, this workshop seeks to explore the elements of theatricality in selected works from the collection of the Museo Reina Sofia, incorporating elements from the theater work, such as gesture, body language, scenographic composition and the expressive potential of light.

    Education

    Artist's Workshop is an initiative from the Education department conceived as a collaborative project between artists and educators with reference temporary exhibitions of the museum. The proposal for the summer of 2014 is based on Playgrounds, an exhibition focused on play and their urban and social impact. The Museum has Leonor Serrano Rivas to design an experience aimed at children aged 8 to 11 years to allow them to review the play spaces commonly used in parks and squares, and create new ones from a fun and critical point of view. During five days, the artist, children and educators, coexist three hours with the aim of developing a specific project that will eventually be visited by their parents.

Along with this concept of site, the collection, exhibitions and public activities are shown as a new way of interacting with the program and function of the Museum.

    The Collection

    During the Spanish Civil War hundreds of pieces of photojournalism were published on the conflict, in magazines in both Spain and abroad. The interest that the war aroused in other countries is manifested in the participation of foreign photographers such as Robert Capa or David Seymour ("Chim"). This room of the Collection also shows the work of photographers such as Agustí Centelles, Alfonso Sánchez Portela and Juan Pando.

    The Collection

    This room of the Museo Reina Sofía Collection shows posters and drawings made during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), underlining the importance of the document in understanding the history of modern art. Works produced in series were, in 1930s Spain, one of the most effective weapons in communicating the effects of the war, and they influenced not just ordinary citizens but also artists such as Picasso and Miró.

    The Collection

    In this work of the Museum's Collection, Juan Gris (1887-1927) plays with truth and illusion, using elements from daily life within the painting. The newspaper cuttings, for example, include messages about the socio-political context and double meanings, statements, opinions and specific allusions to the role of the artist, as interpreted by Eugenio Carmona and María Dolores Jiménez-Blanco.

    The Collection Centro de estudios

    The work of Juan Gris (1887-1927) has often been considered secondary and derivative; this video is a response to such affirmations. Through a visit to the room dedicated to him at Museo Reina Sofía, the work of this painter is re-evaluated, showing it to be the real source of the notions of analytic and synthetic cubism, based on a conception of painting as a poetic analogy of the world.

    Modern architecture has a twofold condition; it is both construction and one of the mass media. The work of the artist Dorit Margreiter (Austria, 1967) analyses how architecture constitutes representation through a complex dissection of the specificity of the artistic medium. Along with the artist, Lynne Cooke, the subdirector of Museo Reina Sofía and curator, presents the ideas developed in the exhibition.
