The Fundació Joan Miró presents the photography exhibition 1946-1947 Barcelona - Mont-roig - Karachi
At the end of World War II and ten years after the beginning of the Spanish Civil War, Joaquim Gomis’s images captured the post-traumatic shock and the slow reconstruction of the settings where his and Joan Miró’s lives had unfolded.
Coinciding with the Indian artist Nalini Malani’s exhibition You Don’t Hear Me, these photographs inquire into the spirit that prevailed in Catalonia at the time of India’s violent partition following its independence from the British Empire.
