Since the sixties, contemporary art has been linked to a series of periodic crises on a global scale. In this context, the new selection of works from the MACBA Collection—from the self-critical reflection of modern painting to art’s efforts to understand a world that behaves like a system of interrelations subject to constant change—suggests some precedents to what we are now calling systemic crisis. Critical Episodes (1957–2011). MACBA Collection traces an itinerary round different moments of change and transition from the most recent modernity to the present.
Passages of Critical Modernity
The exhibition is arranged in a sequence of six episodes or passages that can be read with relative independence.
