Joan Miró Foundation - Kader Attia. Scars remind us that our past is real

The exhibition featuring French-Algerian artist Kader Attia, the winner of the latest edition of the Joan Miró Prize, is a survey of his most relevant works from the last few years, in a dialogue with new ones created for the exhibition. Selected especially by the artist, these pieces revolve around the notion of repair, one of his main areas of interest. The show includes a series of interviews, partly filmed in Barcelona, that examine the effects of globalisation on individuals.
