Programa Per amor a les arts 2021-2022


We put on the table this new proposal from the cycle For the Love of the Arts, in which painting, theatre, dance, architecture, music, design, literature and opera are once again the protagonists. We would like to be able to affirm that this sixth season, which relates cinema to other artistic disciplines.

The rules of the game of cinematographic correspondence, with the presence of experts in the subjects, do not vary in relation to previous years and we hope that the socio-sanitary conditions allow us to respect the planned schedules in the different fields.

The museum collaborates with the screenings of:

  • Tuesday 26 October 2021: Francophony (Aleksandr Sokurov, 2015. 88'). After his approach to the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg in The Russian Ark, Sokurov travels to another of the most visited museums in the world, the Louvre in Paris, to explore the preservation activities of its works under the Nazi occupation. The film dialogues with the exhibition Museum in danger! Safeguarding and organisation of Catakan art during the Civil War. Presentation by the curators of the exhibition.
