You will get to follow a story told from the perspective of Barcelona and its immediate context.
Find in this exhibition works that depict the transformation of Barcelona in the 1930s and its commitment to modernity, to the involvement of art in the Spanish Civil War.
You will also get to admire the first attempts to rekindle the spirit of culture in the post-war years, and an expression of feminist and hippie movements through artistic expression in pop, psychedelia, and acid pop.
One of the current temporary exhibits is Fina Miralles: I Am All the Selves that I Have Been by one of the foremost Spanish artists of the 1970s: Fina Miralles.
