Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress
Now on - Mar 8, 2020

Take an in-depth look at the work of German artist Charlotte Posenenske, created between 1956 and 1968. Posenenske was one of the most important German minimalists. Her work spans the gamut between participatory art, performance, social practice, and institutional criticism.

Feast your eyes on paintings, drawings, and sketches that make a statement about today's mass production and the standardization of life. See prototypes of modular sculptures that replicate daily objects, laid out in an artistic setting.

Now on - Apr 19, 2020

Greek artist, Takis (Panagiotis Vassilakis,) brought to us brand new art forms using magnetism, light, and sound. Take a deep dive into the Athens artist's life and work, from when he traveled between Paris, London, New York, as well as Athens between 1950 and 1970. This exhibition is the first solo presentation of Takis' work in Barcelona, and is being showcased for a limited time only.


If being confused by incomprehensible art is your thing, you'll be comfortable at the MACBA. Enter Barcelona's huge contemporary art museum and let your imagination unscramble both the permanent and temporary collections.

Art is a serious business at the mammoth MACBA, the big boss of Barcelona's contemporary art scene. The permanent collection at MACBA boasts around 5,000 works from the mid-20th century onward, across three periods – the 1940s till the 1960s, 1960s till the 1970s, and contemporary.

The museum lifts the lid on the history of modern and contemporary art from Barcelona's unique point of view. It's minimalistic, cool, and packed with amazing art in all forms. Skip the line and spend those extra hours soaking up art in air-conditioned comfort!
