This initiative promotes collaboration between the main cultural facilities and schools (nursery, primary and secondary) in the Raval district, with the aim of developing innovative classroom projects adapted to the different situations of each school and that become part of their academic curriculum.

Interactive networks will be created between teaching staff in schools and the educational departments of the cultural institutions with the aim of generating customised proposals and the promotion of joint actions tailored to each curricular need.

The aim is to attract neighbourhood students to the main cultural institutions of the Raval.

Features:
- Long duration projects (a school year, with the option for continuity) linked to a cycle, group or class.
- The initiatives will be included in the academic curriculum.
- The main cultural institutions make their educational resources available to schools.
- The schools are committed to carrying out joint work with the educational departments of the main cultural institutions of the district.

Participants:
The main cultural institutions: CCCB, Filmoteca de Catalunya, Gran Teatre del Liceu, MACBA, Museu Marítim de Barcelona and Palau Güell.
Schools: Escola Bressol Canigó, Escola Castella, Escola Collaso i Gil, Escola Drassanes, Escola Labouré, Escola Milà i Fontanals, Escola Rubén Darío, Escola Vedruna-Àngels, IES Milà i Fontanals and IES Miquel Tarradell.

MACBA with Magnet. Alliances for Educational Success

Since mid-April MACBA has been collaborating with Magnet. Alliances for Education Success, a programme bringing together major cultural and scientific institutions and educational centers. Inspired by the American magnet schools and adapting it to a Catalan context for the first time, the project is promoted by the Department of Education of the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Fundació Jaume Bofill.

The aim is to work closely for four years with the educational centers so that the specific knowledge of the institution of reference (in our case, contemporary art) can impregnate day-to-day educational practice and the learning processes. As the title indicates, the intention is to act as a magnet: to provide magnetism to a particular educational center so it can become a referent in its own field.

Besides introducing a methodological innovation, the initiative aims to increase the number of students in the selected educational centers and to work on specific areas of knowledge, such as art, science and communication, in a practical manner.

A pilot project has already begun in three primary schools and one secondary school in Barcelona, with more joining us in the near future. Besides MACBA, the institutions participating at this early stage are TV3 and the Institute of Marine Sciences. MACBA will collaborate directly with the Escola Josep M. de Sagarra and the Institut Moisès Broggi.

MeLa Project

"MeLa – Museums in an Age of Migrations. Reinterpreting Europe’s Cultural Heritage in the 21st Century" is a research project that aims to reflect on the role of museums – with a special focus on specific areas such as museum libraries – in the construction and dissemination of European cultural heritage, and to identify the new paths that are opening up to museums and libraries in today’s context of mobility and change.

This four-year project funded by the European Commission brings together a consortium of academic institutions and museums from five European countries, coordinated by the Department of Architectural Design at Politecnico di Milano.

MACBA’s collaboration in the project, channelled through the MACBA Study Centre, is based on the idea of exhibitions as discursive artefacts. From this point of departure, it explores different aspects such as thinking about and analysing relevant case studies from the history of exhibitions; using its own experience in managing the MACBA historical archive to develop a series of guidelines for archives and documentation, and a formal review of traditional presentation formats, in collaboration with several postgraduate programmes in architecture, interior design, etc.

Results of the MeLa project - Architecture Open Call

The results of the MeLa Project call for proposals have now been released. The proposals address the redefinition of the lobby of the MACBA Study Centre as a multifunctional space for activities and exhibitions of archival materials.

The jury has selected the projects that best resolved the specifications set out in the conditions of entry and the requirements of the space, in accordance with four categories: Urban Intervention, Interior Design, Furniture Design and Graphic Design

This is the list of finalists and winners for each category.

L’Internationale, a new concept of European networking

L’Internationale is a museum network based on a long-term relationship outside the usual parameters. Unlike other similar experiences, this network is defined as a new artistic internationalism, not hierarchical and decentralised, and based on the value of difference and horizontal exchanges. The aim is to establish links between the participating institutions, to create networks, to favour transversal research and share methodologies.

The network includes six major European museums: Moderna galerija (MG, Ljubljana, Slovenia); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS, Madrid); Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA, Barcelona); Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen (M HKA, Antwerp, Belgium); SALT (Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey) and the Van Abbemuseum (VAM, Eindhoven, Netherlands). Also taking part as associates in the project are several academic and artistic institutions.

The first collaboration began with the project 1957–1986. Art from the Decline of Modernism to the Rise of Globalisation, which took place in 2010–12. The second main project – started in 2013 and continuing until 2017 – is entitled: The Uses of Art. The Legacy of 1848 and 1989. The selected dates mark two turning points in the creation of a new citizenry.

L’Internationale has received funding from the European Union for the value of 2.5 million euros to help develop its full agenda of exhibitions, publications, magazines, and an online platform centred on editorial practices.

Creators IN RESIDENCE in Barcelona High Schools

Since the 2011-2012 academic year, MACBA's Educational Programmes Department has been collaborating with 'Creators IN RESIDENCE in Barcelona High Schools', a programme run by the Institut de Cultura and the Consorci d'Educació, Barcelona, in cooperation with the association A Bao A Qu.

'Creators IN RESIDENCE' aims to create links between art and education through ongoing dialogue among students, teachers and artists. This singular project allows students and teachers to actively witness the conception and production of an artwork, and to follow the methodologies of the resident artists up close. By drawing on the actual processes of contemporary creation, the project encourages artistic experimentation and educational innovation, as well as generating new models for learning in participatory contexts.

By taking part in the project, MACBA contributes tools for exploring artistic heritage and sets up links between the works in the permanent collection and classroom experiences, through specific tours conceived by the artists in conjunction with the Museum's Education Department.

Lines of Work

Through its Public Programmes, the MACBA Study Centre and the Independent Studies Programme (PEI), MACBA works alongside other entities, institutions and individuals who play a part in enriching a new kind of cultural patrimony. These three platforms set up vital and necessary links between heritage preservation and the dissemination of the knowledge that stems from it. Significant additions to its documentary collection mean that MACBA is now one of the most important archives in terms of the writing of contemporary art history. In this sense, the Museum also takes on the role of research centre.

MACBA combines the production of its own content, exhibitions and publications with co-productions with other museums around the world. It also regularly collaborates with institutions that request loans of works from the MACBA Collection. The Museum’s commitment to research and diffusion allows its different areas of activities to open out and become part of a network with the complicity of external entities, positioning MACBA within a sphere of national and international scope.
