On the street. Conference on Joan Colom and his context

The current Joan Colom retrospective exhibition at Museu Nacional is the reason for this one-day conference, which aims at providing a new context for understanding Colom’s work in its larger historical context.

The program is divided in two parts. The first part traces the hegemony of humanist and neorealist discourses in post-war photography in Europe and North America. Largely historicized according to the ideological conditions of the cultural Cold War in the West, post-war documentary photography was characteristically promoting peaceful notions of social integration of the lower classes in the then emerging welfare state by means of images of universal fraternity. The Family of Man exhibition from 1955 was the monument of this poetics. This is the context of Colom’s arrival to photographic culture.

The second part of the conference is an approach to the ethic and political issues raised by Colom’s clandestine photography method. It also aims at offering a context for a reading of Colom’s work as a contribution to a urban history of the informal and vernacular uses of public space in Barcelona in the period between Franco’s dictatorship in the 1960s and the post-Olympic neoliberal city after the 1990s, with the successful social-democratic urban experiment of the 1980s Barcelona in between.

For the love of Art. Film and painting

Film series

Place:Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya and Filmoteca de Catalunya
Date:From 8 October to 13 May 2014

For the love of Art: film and painting is the result of a partnership between the Filmoteca and the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, the second combined project, intended to open up the two institutions to new publics and new disciplines.

The programme includes films by some of the great directors in the history of the cinema, films for reflecting on the meaning of the work of art or on the creative process and films that will immerse you in the lives of universally acknowledged artists. All the screenings will be presented by a specialist in film or art or from the academic world.
