The Audiovisual Documentation Collection reviews the trajectory of artists,
who explain their works in the MACBA Collection.

Club 49 was founded in April 1949 by a group of Catalan artists and intellectuals who were determined to encourage the most radical and experimental cultural manifestations of the moment. Among its founders were personalities such as Sebastià Gasch, Joaquim Gomis, Sixt Illescas and Joan Prats, authentic leader of the project and a culturally and politically committed person. For over two decades this association organised numerous performances of contemporary music, jazz, cinema, theatre, poetry and dance, as well as lectures and exhibitions. Club 49 drew the young creators of the new Catalan art scene, such as Joan Brossa, Xavier Miserachs, Pere Portabella, Leopoldo Pomés, Antoni Tàpies and, naturally, Mestres Quadreny himself.
