AuerAnother of our recommended exhibitions is ‘Weegee by Weegee’, which brings together over 100 photographs taken by the New York chronicler from the 1930s and 1940s. You can visit this exhibition at the headquarters of the Foto Colectania Foundation in Barcelona.

Also in Barcelona, we recommend a visit to ‘Fruit Belt’, an exhibition by Artist Martin Llavaneras in Espai 13 at the Joan Miró Foundation, which invites you on an incursion into the lines that divide humankind from its environment.

In Galicia, the exhibition ‘Da árbore á cadeira’ is still on at the Centro Gaiás Museum in the Cidade da Cultura, which is divided into four themes: design, industry, cultural heritage and art, and these are used to focus on the design of furniture and the industrialisation of the Galician woodwork and furniture industry.

Lastly, in Prague, you can visit the ‘Big Bang Data’ exhibition at the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art. This exhibition reflects on how the information explosion is transforming our world.
