Camins encontrats ('Found Paths'). Joan Rabascall: Works 1975 & 2012)
Del Big Bang al Big Brother

The project 'Camins encontrats' ('Found Paths') aims to bring together two works from different times by one artist, and through this exhibition and dialogue to discover and delve into questions about art that arise as a result. In the first of two shows, you'll see two opposing works by Joan Rabascall, 'Franco hace deporte – Autopistas Concesionaria Española S.A.' (1975), and 'From the Big Bang to Big Brother' (2012). Putting one in front of the other lets viewers compare two positions, two situations, two moments that highlight fundamental questions of Rabascall’s artistic practice, while placing them in the new context amplifies views and questions about them. Both works, despite the technical and stylistic differences, denounce the excesses and hypocrisy of consumerist ideology, making use of the same procedures and languages ​​through which it perpetuates itself: the mass media. With this phenomenon, Rabascall’s work makes a statement about the emancipatory role of art.
