Under the title Modern Movement and Contemporary Art, diverse questions will be addressed including the presentation of the map-guide by El globus vermell, the presentation of a photography project at Casa Bloc by Irene Visa and a talk titled Domènec: an artist specialised in modern architecture.
On the 20th of April, a talk on GATCPAC and furniture design will be held at Barcelona’s Design Museum.
