Rediscovering Barcelona at the Museum of Ethnology


The Barcelona Museum of Ethnology is inaugurating an exhibition which invites visitors to rethink the city via certain elements (people, messages, festivities, streets, buildings, cultures etc.) which provide the title for the different sections of the display and which constitute the tools for analysing the city where we live from new perspectives.

The display is a way of looking at the streets of the city as a public space with a physical dimension, as well as a set of regulations and orders established by institutions with a certain input from citizens. What attitudes, appearances, costumes and architectural landscapes characterise Barcelona? You’ll find some clues here to help you discover them.

Les cares de Barcelona offers a visit to a city full of warnings, signs, announcements, prohibitions and more. Barcelona can actually be read, as it is full of messages, some of which have been promoted by institutions to create a shared vision between citizens, a model of city which looks to present itself as a desirable habitat.

The exhibition is on throughout 2017.
