As part of the exhibition Critical Episodes (1957-2011). MACBA Collection, Level 1 of the Museum presents two new episodes of the MACBA Collection. On the sixties, the world was configuring itself as a global system in almost every sense: transport, the media and capital broke free from national spheres, and this process favoured new forms of life. Many of those working in the field of artistic practices understood that art could not ignore the social and political changes that were brewing. This episode entitled The Art of the First Globalisation offers a first snapshot of that new historical world order through the works of artists such as Marcel Broodthaers, Öyvind Fahlström, Hans Haacke, Miralda and Hélio Oiticica.
