A blog of personal reflections, adventures both close to home and far away, political musings and commentary, and thoughts on negotiating life as a twenty-something, queer Mainer transplanted to New York City hoping to write, inspire, teach and change the world.

MACBA, Barcelona

Inside MACBA
Originally uploaded by killerfemme
Though the phrase I uttered most often in Barcelona was "unimpressed" (with Modernisme, with the tourists, with the rude bartenders...), I did like the MACBA and the CCCB (Center for Contemporary Culture, Barcelona). The CCCB especially had interesting and provacative exhibitis on Apartheid in South African and it's ramifications for racism worldwide and on the end of Franco's rule in Spain. Both the exhibits at the CCCB mixed politics, history and art in a way that I have never seen in an American museum (probably because they can't get funding to do so) and I found that really exciting.
