Last October our collaborators participated in the first introductory course about contemporary art organized by the MACBA Foundation. It was based on the new exhibition A Short Century: MACBA Collection and counted on the presence of  Dr. Lourdes Cirlot, professor of Contemporary Art of the Faculty of Geography and History at the University of Barcelona, and Dr. Daniel López del Rincón, professor of the History of Art Department at the same university.


The course was carried out within four sessions that consisted in both a theoretical and practical part, visiting the exhibition rooms. Each session focused on a key movement of contemporary art: Informalism and the exaltation of the inner expression of the artist; conceptual art and povera art as a return to simplicity; photography and poster art as a social weapon and, finally, the body regarded to be as a battleground.
