the new season of CaixaForum

The power of women, as revered as feared throughout history; an intimate portrait of the filmmaker Luis García Berlanga that promises to reveal unknown stories of both his work and his life; the relationship between art and nature or the landing of the largest dinosaur on record, coming from Patagonia… Under the motto We grow in culture, the La Caixa Foundation begins its new exhibition season with 34 samples that will travel through the network of CaixaForum centers and the CosmoCaixa Science Museum. Many of them have already been seen and will be moving around the different venues in the coming months, while ten will do so as world premieres. As always, the programming aims to reach the widest possible audience and it does so together with important international museums such as the British Museum, the Center Pompidou, the Cinémathèque Française or the Prado Museum.
