Domènec. The Stadium, the Pavilion and the Palace

Fundació Mies van der Rohe and MACBA present the intervention “The Stadium, the Pavilion and the Palace”, within the framework of MACBA’s “Domènec. Not here. Not anywhere.” exhibition. Domènec, a visual artist that reflects on the political strategies of historical memory and social empowerment, reflects on the image we have on the mountain of Montjuïc as a result of the international exhibition of 1929, and contrasts it with the social reality of this place right afterwards and we could even say that until the reconstruction of the Pavilion of Mies van der Rohe in 1988. The Pavilion of Belgium, the Palace of the Missions and the Olympic Stadium hosted people without resources that supposedly had to stay for a provisional period, as Huertas Claveria writes in the Destiny magazine in 1966, and the artist relates it by inserting images, texts and objects into the space of the Pavilion.
