“Open Screen. Works from the MACBA Collection” is a unique film cycle that, every Thursday, invites you to enjoy free-to-air works from the MACBA Collection. For 24 hours, you will be able to watch selected films and videos by the artists Albert Serra, Pedro G. Romero, Muntadas, Adrian Melis, Itziar Okariz, Pere Portabella, The Otolith Group, Video-Nou, Cabello/Carceller and María Ruido on our website. 

The cycle addresses topics related to the immediacy of the present and to the need to rethink certain collective challenges affecting humankind: the way we work and the productive regime in the contemporary world, the place that the body has in the construction of the subject, the different types of malaise in the information society, the link between power and knowledge, or the new global challenges of the 21st century.
