We pay homage to Picasso in the Reading Club

The last session of the Reading Club for the 2011-2012 course counted on two exceptional protagonists: Josep Palau i Fabre and Jordi Coca.

A Micro-documentary from the programme No t’ho perdis (“Don’t miss it”) on Canal 33 (Catalan TV) broadcast on Saint George’s Day about this session of the Reading Club

From the first we read “Homage to Picasso”, a play in the form of dream cabaret, which signifies the umpteenth demonstration of the fascination and interest that the painter caused on the poet, playwright, narrator and essay writer of all things Picasso.

The second showed that, apart from being a novelist and a top level man of the theatre, he is one of the maximum experts about Palau.  The conversation was erudite and agreeable, and went from the text to the historic and social context, from the life of the writer to the life of the painter, of biographical curiosities to the profound reflection about the strange relation the two creators had.

Coca highlighted Palau’s “sincere conviction that Picasso signified modernity, given the fact that Palau assumed that the change that this signified wasn’t a question of the word if not the image” and that, as in all the business decisions taken throughout his life, “the option of subjecting his work to the fascination for Picasso was vital and radical”.

A perfect end to a course full of extraordinary moments.  Or to be continued, as we’ll be back in October.

Conversing with Xavier Vilató

The museum, with the exhibition “People”, is one of the five venues of the exhibition-homage “Vilató 1921-2000. Barcelona – Paris. A space of freedom”, that Barcelona is dedicating to this artist. Nephew of Picasso, Javier Vilató kept up a very close relation with his uncle and he was key in the donation process that the artist made to the city of Barcelona in 1970.

What do we know about the Museu Picasso visitors?

The museum now knows a little more about its visitors after carrying out a one-year museum marketing study and conducting 2,102 situational interviews.
The study is based on the following sections:

  • Quality measurement, differentiating between expectations prior to the visit and the quality perceived after the visit.
  • Visitor profile, in order to see the type of people who visit the museum (gender, age, nationality, residence, education and career).
  • Visiting habits, determining the frequency of visits, the reasons, time of stay and the composition of the visiting group.

Talking about Picasso’s Guernica at Montjuïc

The Generalitat de Catalunya’s Memorial Democràtic initiative has organized a series of activities, exhibitions and talks to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Civil War bombing of the civilian population.

Guernica. Pablo Picasso, 1937. Oil on canvas

Although aerial bombardment had been used in previous wars, the Spanish Civil War was the first in which the civilian population was subjected to intensive and continuous attack from the air. First in Euskadi — the Basque Country — and then all over the country, the rebel General Franco’s army and its Italian and German allies systematically bombed defenceless towns and cities behind the lines. This aberrant tactic continued during World War II and culminated in the dropping of the atomic bomb, on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Since then the bombing of the civilian population has been a common practice in almost all wars.
