What To See On A Reina Sofía Museum Tour?

The Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid displays an unrivaled collection of Spanish art. Here are the most important pieces of art:

Campo cerrado

The exhibition Campo Cerrado, which takes its name from Max Aub's book of the same name, tries to assess Spanish art in the highly contentious 1940s, a period that has attracted considerable attention and that, despite being crucial in shaping Spain's modern perception, exists in a crucial and historiographical suction.

Double Exhibition: Art and Cold War

The nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 marked the beginning of the Cold War era, which was shaped by the USA's dominance in the Western world. This emphasis reveals the function of art exhibition mechanisms, which are rarely neutral and are intricately entwined with socio-political, and economical issues in the context in which they are used.

A Drunken Boat:

Eclecticism, Institutionalism, and Disobedience in the ‘80s Rudi Fuchs, the exhibition's curator for the 1982 Documenta in Kassel, considered calling the show The Drunken Boat after the poem by Arthur Rimbaud to allude to work that was mindlessly drifting outside of "style wars." An eclecticism of kinds characterized artistic activities during that era. An artistic movement that embraced post-punk ideologies as well as contemporary feminism.

Enemies of Poetry: Resistance in Latin America 

Experiments in art from earlier decades would become radicalized and forcefully located within the Latin American setting of the late 1960s to mid-1980s, a time characterized by colonial legacies and a succession of authoritarian regimes. 
It focuses on a region that has remained mostly fractured, outside groups and networks of interchange and criticism created by artists, philosophers, and activists — flowing outside of Latin America to discharge into other continents.

Weapons Must Be on the Front

This graphic art on lithograph & paper dates back to 1973 and portrays the section of plastic arts of the Alliance of intellectuals for the defense of culture. It constitutes the Reina Sofía Collection along with The Seamstress and other paintings on paper.

The Seamstress

The Seamstress dates back to 1943. This marvelous 103 x 83 cm oil painting serves as one of the main attractions in the Reina Sofía Arts Center and is an integral part of the Reina Sofía Collection.

The Lost Thought

The most iconic and universal representation of exile is the image of Republican exile, which shows thousands of Spaniards marching north along the side of the road. It alludes to the diaspora, which was crucial for Spain and the twentieth century as well as the present twenty-first century, which is characterized by the global migration problem.
