The Miserachs family deposits 80,000 photographic images, taken from 1954 to 1998
An exciting journey through time, an adventure in which the phantasmagorical character of the photographs is sometimes pure archaeology and at other times the present day. In the exhibition the images of Barcelona, blanc i negre come alive, constantly changing like the continual transformative energy of the city and its people. As with the photobook, the show presents urban experiences that are as fluid and instantaneous as the photos, forever incomplete and imperfect, yet retaining the ephemeral and resisting oblivion. In Miserachs Barcelona, the viewer encounters the photos of Barcelona, blanc i negre arranged in the form of large murals, shop-windows, enlargements and projections. It opens with a twilight panorama, both unreal and documentary, that refers to the distant horizons of the cinema. Curator Horacio Fernandez.
