Bodies and Identities

Primary School Pupils

Gallery conversation

Through artists such as Pablo PicassoIsidre Nonell and Joan Miró this guided tour reveals how different individual and collective identities converged in the early decades of the 20th century. This circumstance is put to pupils via an analysis of works that feature the body and personality as objects of physical and symbolic study.

Women at the turn of the century or the figure of the Avant-garde artist projecting their personal concerns on their work, these are some of the identities reflected in the pieces that make up the visit. From this perspective, cultural volunteers from the Museo Reina Sofía will lay out a formal and conceptual exploration to groups of 8-10 year-olds and 10-12 year-olds in Primary Education in the form of a guided visit, to take place in the exhibition rooms of Collection 1.

  • Guided visit Guernica. The history of an icon
    January 1 - December 31, 2016

    The purpose of this activity is to help visitors understand how and why Guernica by Pablo Picasso (Málaga, 1881- Mougins, 1973) has become a symbol of Spain's transition to democracy and a universally recognised icon. The narrative goes beyond traditional interpretations and uncovers the multiplicity of factors and implications related to the artistic act.
