    The Museum

    This video introduces an overall vision of Museo Reina Sofía, conceived as an expanded museum with different venues (Sabatini Building, Nouvel Building, Palacio de Cristal and Palacio de Velázquez), and different experiences and audiences. 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

    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.

    The author of the book De cómo Nueva York robó a París la idea de arte moderno (Madrid, 1990) and the curator of the exhibitionBajo la bomba: el jazz de la guerra de imágenes transatlántica, 1946-1956 (MACBA and Museo Reina Sofía, 2007) talks about the new post-war scenario in dispute, in which there is a convergence of realism, abstraction and traces of an historical avant-garde that shows clear signs of exhaustion.

    In this interview, Georges Didi-Huberman, the curator of the exhibition ATLAS. How to carry the world on one's back? contemplates the model of the atlas as a mechanism by which to reshape the sensory order of the world and the relationships that are established in the creation of knowledge. Taking the work of Aby Warburg as a point of departure, artistic production is contemplated as a montage, in which things, places and time can be reconfigured.

    The work of José Val del Omar (Granada, 1904-Madrid, 1982) goes beyond the usual limits of cinema and technique. The artist developed a particular relationship with poetry, mysticism, experience and moving images throughout his entire career. In contrast with cinema as a spectacle that is merely for contemplation, Val del Omar theorizes on and puts into practice an expanded and physical cinema, which can be summarized in concepts such as apanoramic overflow and diaphonic sound.

    The work of Hans-Peter Feldmann (Düsseldorf, 1941) focuses several decades of careful classification and reordering of the sensible world through the image. With systematic thoroughness, Feldmann classified traces of the society through trivial and banal images and objects, recovering the subjective and narrative power of the image in the viewer. The curator, Helena Tatay, introduces the exhibition, held at the Museo Reina Sofia (September 22, 2010 to February 28, 2011).
