Museo Reina Sofía - Introduction 2014
The Museo Reina Sofía wishes to embody the concept of an expanded museum, where the experience of contemporary art is both a source of enjoyment and knowledge. Its Collection, made up of over 20,000 works, avoids representing one sole and closed interpretation of art history, opting instead for multiple histories. A museum that is a catalyst for ideas, discourses and poetics in its temporary exhibitions and intensive programme of audiovisuals and live arts, as well as a continual forum for thought, debate and education designed for all ages through courses, conferences and workshops in which visitors take centre stage.
Museo Reina Sofía. Presentation
This video introduces an overall vision of Museo Reina Sofía, conceived as an expanded museum with different venues (Sabatini Building, Nouvel Building, Palacio de Cristal and Palacio de Velázquez), and different experiences and audiences. Along with this concept of site, the collection, exhibitions and public activities are shown as a new way of interacting with the program and function of the Museum.
