Stricken bodies / mutant bodies. Between horror and festivity, the materials gathered show not only the consequences of mass disappearances and massacres under dictatorial régimes, states of siege and internal wars, but also various collective urges to devise modes of existing in a permanent state of revolution.

    The Museum

    The Museo Reina Sofía wishes to embody the concept of an expanded museum, where the experience of contemporary art is both a source of enjoyment and knowledge. Its Collection, made up of over 20,000 works, avoids representing one sole and closed interpretation of art history, opting instead for multiple histories. A museum that is a catalyst for ideas, discourses and poetics in its temporary exhibitions and intensive programme of audiovisuals and live arts, as well as a continual forum for thought, debate and education designed for all ages through courses, conferences and workshops in which visitors take centre stage.

    With some 300 works, the exhibition recounts a different history of art, from the end of the 19th century to the present day, in which artists and activists play a part in redefining public space by exploring the city as a game board, questioning modern-day carnival and holidays, vindicating the right to laziness, reinventing the square as a place of revolt and discovering the possibilities of a new world through its waste. The exhibit takes the playground model as an ideological interrogation of an alienated and consumerist present.
