What is the art complex?

From the 3rd of April to the 15th of May, MACBA offers a course which will provide an opportunity to familiarise yourself with the new terminology of contemporary art

Within the framework of the exhibition L’art de la primera globalització. Episodis crítics (1957-2011) (The art of the first globalization. Critical episodes), which can be seen up until the 24th of June, MACBA has organised a course dealing with contemporary art.

By bringing together works from the 1960s and 70s by artists such as Marcel Broodthaers, Öyvind Fahlström, Hans Haacke, Miralda and Hélio Oiticica, the exhibition provides an approach to artists who took into consideration not only the work of art per se, but also the institution where it was exhibited and the role of the media, among other factors. The new social and financial contexts, therefore, appear in their performances and installations in one form or another.

The course
includes the participation of six expert invitees, Michel Feher, Pedro de Llano, Xavier Antich, Peio Aguirre, Beatriz Preciado and Joana Masó, who will provide the participants with some of the required tools for interpreting contemporary art via both their conferences and an additional visit to the museum in which the works of some of the artists on display will be analysed. On Mondays there will be theoretical sessions in the auditorium and on Wednesdays, complementary visits to the exhibition rooms. There is also the option of signing up for just the theoretical sessions or, if spaces permit, sporadic attendances at one of the six conferences. 

In this way MACBA offers the opportunity to familiarise oneself with the new terminology used in debates concerning contemporary art.
