“Nothing to See”, an online tour of the museum that cannot be seen

Res a veure

Within its educational and accessibility programmes, MACBA has been conducting research into art and visuality since 2018. We are offering you a tour of the museum’s different contents, which encourage reflection on visuality and question the centrality of the gaze and of the ‘presence’ of the artwork, with works by Derek Jarman, Pep Agut, Perejaume, Dieter Roth, Pistoletto, Ignasi Aballí, Mabel Palacín, Luz Broto, Jordi Colomer and Yoko Ono, among others.

What does it mean to see a work of art? What does contemporary art offer up for us to see and what does it not allow us to see? How does it make us see it? What does seeing mean, in general? How do we see what cannot be seen? “Nothing to See” is the name of an area of research within the MACBA’s educational and accessibility programmes. It focuses on the realm of visuality in contemporary art and, more specifically, on an issue found in many artworks and artistic practices: the questioning of the privilege, the sense and the limits of visual perception.

“Nothing to See” is an activity aimed at people with diverse degrees of impaired vision and the general public. It is a workgroup in which a number of artists present an approach and a collective work that considers the notion of ‘nothing to see’ through their respective artistic practices and paths.
