    Lettrism and the subversion of language

    Collection Stories is an educational program aimed at helping audiences reach a better understanding of the collection. Through it, viewers can take a special look, every two months, at a specific room or rooms in the Museum. The idea is to encourage visitors to draw connections, between the works within the space visited and also between these works and the rest of the collection.
On this occasion we will be visiting the two rooms dedicated to the Lettrism movement (room 403 and 403bis). This movement, founded in post-World War II Paris by Isidore Isou, proclaims the destruction of poetry and puts forward an aesthetic based on letters and signs, which goes beyond the usual limits of the visual arts and encompasses all facets of knowledge and creation.

    Wednesdays and saturdays. March 2 - April 30

    During the Franco dictatorship, a series of political and artistic movements emerged and assumed a position of antagonism to the regime. On this occasion, two of the Museum's exhibition rooms will be visited: the first is the one dedicated to Estampa Popular, a movement that favoured art that was involved with the world, that was comprehensible and accessible, far from the elitism of the abstract avant-garde.

A hard, merciless light. The Worker-Photography Movement, 1926-1939

    This program of commented visits uncovers the lines of discourse present in the exhibition on the origins and evolution of the worker-photography movement, which developed in the 1920s in connection with the international workers' movement. The purpose of the visit is to take a new look at the worker-photography movement, a key moment in the history of photography that is often marginalized, forgotten or repressed, and put it back in the centre of debates on the nature of photographic activity between the wars.

    Avant-garde Views

    Primary School Pupils

    In the early decades of the 20th century a new society was being defined by habits, modes of production and the relationships between the people that defined it, changes that were reflected in the cultural context, where artistic experimentation with highly diverse results took place. In Avant-garde Views, pupils will perceive these circumstances through an analysis of one the Avant-garde’s favourite themes – the representation of the artists’ surroundings and the spaces encircling them.
