DESCRIPTION

As part of the exhibition Critical Episodes (1957-2011). MACBA Collection, Level 2 of the Museum presents two new episodes of the MACBA Collection. One of these episodes is Work, Power and Control, related to the second globalisation of the 1980s that resulted in a deep transformation of labour and its associated values. The dismantling of the traditional chains of production had direct consequences on individual lives. Societies and their relational systems endured radical changes, while a global scenario of control was gradually being put into place.

MACBA will be closed on 25 December and 1 January
