With 'Just davant nostre' ('Before our eyes'), the MACBA delves into the goings-on in the Mediterranean area of north Africa and the Middle East, and the emergence of new forms of civil society in the context of the Arab world. The project centres on the Rif mountains, where there has been an experience exchange between artists and the people of the Maghreb. This experience has led to changes in artistic processes in relation to their context, and to the reflection on the notion of authorship, the conditions of creating a work of art, and its registration within the institution of the museum and within history.
