Welcome to our confinement diary
Sometimes art overtakes life. The artists in the MACBA Collection offer us experiences for distancing ourselves from the world and works that are a call to action. A typography of possible things to do during the period of confinement. Day after day, from MACBA, art will be with you.
The Boundary Condition. About the archive and its limits
The boundary condition refers in this case to the conditions resulting from the difficult delimitation of the concept of archiving in the context of today, and in relation to the incidental waves and echoes that occur between what we consider an archive and what it leaves behind.
The MACBA Collection focuses on art from the second half of the 20th century to the present day. However, it begins with selected works from the avant-garde of the 1920s to establish its central core around 1968, a date that radically transformed the paradigm of contemporary art.
Since the sixties, Miralda's work has been notable for its incisive analysis of the mechanisms of state control and the conventions of our consumer society, and its irreverent demystification of the clichés around the production and reception of the artistic object. His early objectual projects soon gave way to ceremonial actions involving collective participation, with food as a protagonist. Fons #03 offers an overview of the career of Antoni Miralda (1942).
