Limen. The art centre as a total institution

From 2nd December 2011 to 31st December 2011

Exhibition of photomontages  by Andrea Corachán Camús

A project by Grup d’Etnografia dels Espais Públics de l’lnstitut Català d’Antropologia curated by Manuel Delgado and Andrea Corachán Camús.


A project inviting reflection on  possible analogies between  large containers of urban art and culture, museums, cultural centres and total institutions ... spaces of confinement and maintenance of people subjected to constant scrutiny: prisons, psychiatric centres, barracks, hospitals, cemeteries, convents, factories ... The proposal combines a series of round tables, to discuss  the relationship between these two types of internment facilities, with the exhibition of a series of photomontages, which will be displayed simultaneously in  the lobbies of several art centres  in Catalonia.
