Still frame from Rigadin, peintre cubiste
The Fundació Joan Miró is participating in the Per amor a les arts series with proposals along the lines of its programming. The series, led by Filmoteca de Catalunya and MNAC, is a tool for dialogue between film and other artistic disciplines, and is held with support from other cultural institutions in Barcelona.
This session, linked to the exhibition Miró-ADLAN. An Archive of Modernity (1932-1936), could easily have been programmed by the members of ADLAN (Amics de l'Art Nou [Friends of New Art]), who, as so many European intellectuals of their times, were fascinated by the origins of film.
