    Virginia Torrente, curator of the exhibition Patricia Gadea. Atomic- Circus, talks about the work of a key artist to understand the cultural situation of our country during the eighties and nineties. The core of this exhibition revolves around the most productive period of Patricia Gadea's work, on his return from New York, where he formed the group Estrujenbank with the painter Juan Ugalde and the poet Dionisio Cañas. At this stage emphasizes the Circus Series (1991-1996), which summarizes the events of that decade in Spain as a clairvoyant messages of great forcefulness. Imbued with irony, like the rest of her work, to date they still have an overwhelming clarity and modernity.

    The exhibition analyse Goeritz’s stints in Spain and North Africa in the 1940s, along with the international expansion of his career, which, in a Cold War context, occurred in the wake of his return to Mexico and which saw him become one of the key figures in the cultural landscape of that country.

    In the installation designed specifically for the Palacio de Cristal, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller appeal to our voyeuristic condition, urging us to move closer and peer into a solitary caravan. Inside it we come across a woman that appears to be sleeping along with a series of marionettes and puppets in the process of being created and the figure of an old draughtsman that appears to be pondering how to breathe life into them. The scene is replete with metaphorical connotations that prompt a reflection on themes such as the passing of time, the humbling power of the imagination (both individual and collective) and the servitudes and limitations of the creative impulse.

    From public space, using the city as the main point of reference and the territory of the Internet, Daniel G. Andújar builds a cultural discourse through digital media and technologies. Using irony and strategies to present new media technologies, he questions, reviews and reflects on the democratic and egalitarian promises of this media, whilst also criticising the will to control concealed behind its apparent transparency.

    Not Yet. On the Reinvention of Documentary and the Critique of Modernism approaches the debates that took place in the 1970s and 1980s surrounding the photographic document as a critique of modern art and institutions. A new generation of artists came on the scene at the time, and, in recovering the political origin of worker photography from the 1920s, began the reinvention of documentary practices, understood in parallel to the critique of the forms of modernism inherited from the Cold War.

    A generation of artists, grouped together under the term "Arte Povera", emerged in Italy in the second half of the 20th century who, influenced by Piero Manzoni and Lucio Fontana’s artwork, and turning to the use of simple, everyday materials, realised a series of works that, without relinquishing a kind of poetic awareness of the world, were profoundly critical of industrialisation and consumer society. Of these artists, Luciano Fabro was the one with a more emphatic connection to the emergence of a new and revised approach located in the tradition. Thus he explored the creative possibilities and perspectives that, in a country like Italy, continued to open the ruins of the past.

    Coinciding with the work to expand the Kunstmuseum Basel, a selection of over one hundred masterpieces from its twentieth-century collection are on show in the Museo Reina Sofía. This ensemble aims to offer a broad panorama of the transition of modern and contemporary art, including examples of such diverse movements as Expressionism, Cubism, Purism, Abstraction, Constructivism, Minimalism, German Post-expressionism, Post-war American Abstraction and Pop Art. Also, two standout art collections from early modernism are brought together, and today form part of the holdings of the Kunstmuseum Basel (Switzerland), the Im Obersteg Collection and the Rudolf Staechelin Collection, that look to delve deeper into the catalysing phenomenon of collecting at the start of modernism and emphasise its central position in the framework of modern art, together with the work of artists, critics and curators.

    The artist Mitsuo Miura in Imagined memories, his intervention in Palacio de Cristal, he delves into two of the aesthetic themes that give expression to his artistic vocabulary: geometric shapes and pure colours. For this building, one of Museo Reina Sofía's two secondary sites in Parque del Retiro, his proposal begins on the pictorial level and extends to the spatial level, through circles of colours distributed on the floor and suspended from the ceiling.

    Montse Aguer, one of the exhibition's curators, takes viewers on a tour of the Salvador Dalí show, putting forward a new vision of the artist as a thinker, writer and creator of a very particular vision of the world. The exhibition comprises approximately two hundred works and is organised into eleven sections that follow something of a chronological order. The works on display date from the early years of his career up through his religious and mystical phases, his period of experimentation with scenography and also the end of his career, which was closely linked to science and technology.
