Protesting with art

Who said art cannot be political? Art is mainly a vehicle for the expression of political views and protest. The Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) gives many examples of “embedded” art and creativity placed in the service of political protest, in an exhibition curated by Guy Schraenen under the title On the Margins of Art. Creation and Political Engagement. The exhibition, running until September 27, brings together some 230 artist’s books, magazines, flyers, posters, postcards and other printed material dating to the period from 1933 to 2008.
