The Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) presents the first collaborative exhibition combining works form the collections of “la Caixa” Foundation and MACBA Collection, as a result of an agreement between “la Caixa” Foundation and MACBA Foundation.

The MACBA Collection is designed to provide an organising framework for the Museum programme as a whole. Muntadas‘ work Between the Frames: The Forum (1983-1993) will be presented as part of the exhibition Volume. The artist defines the piece as follows: “An extensive vision of the artistic system of the 1980s”. Between the Frames is a large installation, one highly representative of Muntadas’ work, which forms part of the MACBA Collection. The project, which was completed over a ten-year period, reveals the artist’s main concerns in his work during the 1980s: the relations between art and society; representation, interpretation and the values of art; and art’s relations with the contemporary phenomena that are popular culture, the media and architecture. Between the Frames: The Forum clearly references the series On Translation, an open work that is still in progress.
