Irony, selected by Ferran Barenblit, contains works by different contemporary artists with very different discourses and dealing with different subjects, but having in common the use of irony in their work. Most of the pieces have been produced during the last couple of years, but the curator has included items from the sixties in order to show the context in which irony appears in the way we understand it today.
