Between 1969 and 1973, Catalan artists based in Paris held a series of celebrations and collective happenings known as Ceremonials. Miralda, Joan Rabascall, Jaume Xifra, Benet Rossell and Dorothée Selz organised collective artistic actions with significant involvement of the public in various places in France and Germany. With a powerful visual force – the chromatic element was fundamental – and coloured food, music, itineraries and ritualised movements, these ‘ceremonials’ were seen as a metaphor for the need for social change that existed at that time.

I believe an artwork should leave the viewer perplexed, make him reflect on the meaning of life
