    Cinema and video Film series

    This series explores how the museum has been conceived, represented and questioned in different film poetics. Filming the museum institution entails not only a discussion on how art is exhibited and its mechanism of interpretation, but also how other past times in the present are inserted and reactivated, articulating an amalgamation of transience, inside and outside the present, that is specific to the museum and its narrations.

    Live Arts Concert

    Resonance is a series of sound interventions for a specific site, activating the acoustic and historical space in the Museo Reina Sofía’s Sabatini Building. The programme refrains from using the auditorium and electronic amplification, which means guest artists, musicians and composers will present a series of pieces that set in motion alternative contexts for sound and contemporary music.
