After more than five years at the Museu Picasso, working on a wide range of projects, but especially on matters relating to the web and social networks, it feels strange to be writing a last post here. Anyway, I thought that a good way to say goodbye would be to publish a selection of my photos of members of the public looking at works by Picasso in museums around the world. In any museum, one of the most interesting things to look at — alongside the works on show and the design and layout of the museum itself — is the public. Some time ago I started a series of albums on Flickr of the museum public: visitors looking, taking photos, talking, teaching, enjoying, interacting, reading, exploring, copying, listening, sharing and more bring to light the many forms and shades of experience in museums. And we still need to do even more to enhance the quality of this visitor experience, making it richer and more diverse.

We come now to the thank-yous: to all of my friends and colleagues at the Picasso, because everything we have done has been done through teamwork (yes, in just five years, we have done ten years work!); to the director, Pepe Serra, for his faith during this phase at the Picasso and in the new phase at the MNAC; to my colleagues in other museums in Barcelona, Catalonia and around the world, and especially to you blog readers, Twitter followers, Facebook friends and web users because you have been meaning to go further each day. A big thank-you to you all, and… see you at the MNAC!!
