Demolition as leitmotiv
The MACBA Collection offers a new presentation of its holdings and recent acquisitions. The exhibition is structured in three chapters with an underlying theme based on the relation between artistic practice and the urban condition. Le Corbusier and Jean Genet inspire the first part, centred round a diorama of the Macià Plan, 1934. The project was aimed at an urban renovation of the centre of Barcelona. In contrast, Jean Genet, who wandered the same streets in the old town soon after Le Corbusier, found a great deal in common with the most abject aspects of the place.
