Poesía Brossa

21 September 2017 - 2 February 2018
MACBA, Plaça dels Àngels, 1 08001 Barcelona  Spain + Google Map

MACBA presents a comprehensive survey of the work of this pioneering artist, from his early books to his latest visual investigations, and including his work in the theatre, cinema, music and artistic actions.

La Capella, Hospital, 56 08001 Barcelona  + Google Map

Is it a ghost, the being with whom that man drawn with a rod in the hand we see in the centerpiece of the exhibition? Who is that man? What are you trying to do? It seems to be blind, but it might just be someone who performs a practical activity that has been ordered, such as removing a cloth. Or is it a flag and is it waving?
