Pablo Picasso, Guernica (detail), 1937

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.

This program of gallery conversations offers some new looks at the Collection, through visits that are limited in both the number of participants and the number of works examined. The idea is to encourage visitors to draw connections, both between the works within the area visited and also between such works and the rest of the Collection.

This visit takes place in Room 206 Guernica and the 1930s, which is on the 2nd floor of the Sabatini building.

The visit will be carried out taking the appropiate sanitary measures, so the use of masks will be mandatory at all times, as well as the maintenance of the interpersonal distance of 1.5 meters.

Use of radioguides: not available.
