How to Preserve Our Memories
The exhibition Miró-ADLAN. An Archive of Modernity (1932-1936) has raised our awareness of the importance of the appropriate conservation of papers and documents which may not initially strike us as particularly relevant. Drawings, postcards, notebooks, newspaper clippings, tickets to concerts or exhibitions, iconic posters, opera programmes... assorted documents such as these may not only contain memories of great sentimental value, but also constitute a legacy that can be of great interest. Anna Ferran, who specialises in preventive conservation and paper restoration, offers us a few suggestions.

The exhibition Miró-ADLAN: An Archive of Modernity (1932-1936) reconstructs the key role of the group of artists and intellectual known as ADLAN (Amics de l’Art Nou [Friends of New Art]) in introducing modernity to the Barcelona of the 1930s, during the years of the Spanish Republic thanks to the AHCOAC (Historical Archive of the Architects’ Association of Catalonia), where a significant amount of extraordinary material has been preserved concerning the activities the group. This page shows a small sample of the documents that you will find in the exhibition.
about "ADLAN Documents"
Images from the past often take us to other moments in time, awakening memories and arousing emotions. Shared Memories is an activity proposal for seniors and for those family members or care home staff accompanying them. The starting point is a series of photographic images by Joaquim Gomis, which evoke specific times and moments in creating an oral narrative charged with anecdotes and recollections. The recordings can be heard on the YouTube channel of the Fundació.
