11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Meier Auditorium

Price: Free admission. Limited capacity. Previous booking required for each projection.

In a double programme, the Meier Auditorium will host the projection of some pieces from the MACBA Collection, selected from the hundred-odd works included in the MACBA Manual, a publication that also addresses key concepts defining the museum’s programming identity. It will be a unique occasion to see works that have not been on display in the Collection rooms for some time, in their original format and on a big screen.

Programme

11 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Vital Statistics of a Citizen, Simply Obtained. Martha Rosler, 1977, 39 min.

This work is based on a performance by Martha Rosler in 1974 at the University of California, in which she refers to the standardization of the female subject in a technological and bureaucratized society.

Numax presenta... Joaquim Jordà, 1979, 105 min.

It is a documentary about the Numax appliance factory, self-managed for two years (1977-1979), a testimony to the resistance of the labour movement in the early years of the Transition. Twenty years later, Jordà met with some of the factory’s ex-workers and filmed Veinte años no es nada (Twenty Years Is Nothing), which is also part of the MACBA Collection.
2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Els Segadors. Coco Fusco, 2001, 21 min.

Recorded in the same space now occupied by the Meier Auditorium, is a premonitory reflection from the outside on the integration or exclusion of the ‘other’ in Catalonia from the beginning of the 21st century, in a context in which identity has tended to be organised around language and not race.

Spanish and Catalan with English subtitles.

 
3 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Rock My Religion. Dan Graham, 1982-1984, 55 min.

It is a complex collage of texts, filmed footage and performance in which Dan Graham suggests the close relationship between religion and rock music.
