Art and Memory. Contemporary Artistic Initiatives


This space – which has occasional contributions from the Maçart group – is devoted to the periodical exhibition of contemporary artistic initiatives based on the relations between art and memory – individual and collective – associated with historical and political events. In this respect, priority is given to those works that, based on a documentary, emotional and reflective perspective, consider the function and influence that memory and the figure of the witness can have both in understanding 20th century history and in a possible critical approach to the complexity of today’s world.



Rosa Brugat. Visual artist of the Empordà.


“Ungles pintades” (Painted fingernails) (digital photograph, printed directly on methacrylate, 92 x 150 cm)


Painted fingernails of different colours to cover “political and everyday fungus and diseases”… to open paths to a more positive world… or the search for a freer world.


The exhibition of the work of Rosa Brugat was seen in the hall of the MUME from 5 to 22 November 2010.
