    Collection 1. The Irruption of the 20th Century: Utopias and Conflicts (1900-1945)

    Collection 1. The Irruption of the 20th Century: Utopias and Conflicts (1900-1945)

    Sabatini Building, Floor 2
    The Collection

    The Collection of Museo Reina Sofía starts with the end of the 19th Century, addressing the conflicts between a dominant Modernity, understood as progress, and its multiple discontents, as an ideology under constant challenge both in the social and the political fronts, and the cultural and artistic ones. The avant-garde, in its reinvention of the subject, of the public and of the art world, becomes the symptom of the new 20th Century. While Cubism defines the modern, ephemeral and multiple gaze, Dada and Surrealism free the subject from the moral and social repression, giving free reign to desire and to the social and individual unconscious.

    Really useful knowledge (29/10/2014)

    Sabatini Building. Floor 1
    Exhibitions

    The notion of "really useful knowledge" was originated from the workers' awareness of the need for self-education in the early 19th century. In the 1820s and 1830s, workers' organizations in United Kingdom introduced this phrase to describe 'unpractical' knowledge like politics, economics and philosophy, as opposed to what factory owners proclaimed to be “useful knowledge”. Some time earlier capitalists began investing in advancement of their businesses through funding the education of workers in 'applicable' skills and disciplines such as engineering, physics, chemistry or math.

    Through this reference to the beginnings of struggle against exploitation and the early efforts towards self-organized education of workers, the exhibition “Really Useful Knowledge” looks into issues around education from contemporary perspective.

    Luciano Fabro (27/11/2014)

    Palacio de Velázquez
    Exhibitions

    The work of Luciano Fabro (Turin, 1936-Milan, 2007) expands the expressive possibilities of sculpture in the second half of the 20th century. His art associates the use of simple and common materials that redefine the nature of the object and its space with a constant poetic reflection on the practice of sculpture, evident in the numerous texts in which the artist has always related thought with experimentation in new practices.

    This anthological exhibition, the first to be held since the artist's death, gathers a constellation of works that are fundamental for an understanding of the singularity of Fabro's oeuvre and features over 60 artworks from diverse private collections and international public institutions.
