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.

Shared Memories

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.
