Any art collection that seeks to be truly contemporary must remain open to an array of different readings rather than being guided by an accumulative or encyclopaedic intent. Based on this idea, in 2002 MACBA embarked on a re-reading of its collection that sought to revise the bourgeois, teleological and progressive nature of the art history that had influenced a large part of European art collecting.

Blue protects white from innocence. Blue drags black with it. Blue is darkness made visible.
