BARRIBROSSA 2015: Picasso and the circus

An itinerant journey, within the framework of BARRIBROSSA 2015, around the different spaces of the Museu Picasso from Brossa's perspective. That of a Joan Brossa who set off the last of the avant-garde, with the Dau al Set. This being a movement which was marked by surrealism, magic and the popular culture. This is therefore a Brossian tour of the universe of the Pierrots, the Colombines and the clowns. A recognition of one of the genres that traditionally has been key for the historical avant-garde and very particularly for Picasso. Pablo Picasso through the circus and the Commedia dell'Arte displays works such as The Death of Harlequin , The Family of the Saltimbanques and the Acrobat . Pablo Picasso and Joan Brossa converge, therefore, in a tour that makes visible the references and the relations with the circus world.
