- 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 period from the 1960s to the 1980s, the years that the new rooms in the Collection explore, is when the political, social, cultural and technological changes that would give shape to the contemporary global situation took place: decolonization, the uprisings of '68, feminist movements, the economic crisis, the expansion of popular culture and the emergence of other peripheral modernisms.
The Museo Reina Sofía Collection comprises about 20,000 works. Our aim is to be able to present the entire Collection on the website. To date, the website offers a selection of over 7,400 works, and the number is growing progressively. In some cases images of the works cannot be shown because of copyright issues.
