In this workshop we will look at some works from the MACBA Collection that ‘break out’ of the exhibition rooms. We will see what happens when an artist decides to produce a piece that is exhibited in the museum’s circulation areas or leaves the Museum altogether and goes outside into public space. We will explore the materials that these works are made out of and observe people's reactions when they unexpectedly come across one of these artworks.

Our challenge will be to collaboratively create our own artistic project inspired by the work that Keith Haring painted in Barcelona in 1989: a public mural that has now been reproduced outside the Museum to coincide with the 25th anniversary of its original creation.

The artworks soak up the sun
I like to work with what is often called "cultural heritage", but the materials that I use are banal and clichéd, like sugar blocks, doors, couscous, rugs, official documents.
