Editorial Montaner i Simon was one of the most important publishing houses in Catalonia and Spain during the second half of the nineteenth century and the first third of the twentieth. For 120 years it produced an extensive catalogue of high-quality publications with a wide distribution network. After it ceased production in 1981, most of its documentation and printing material was lost or dispersed. With the aim of recovering this legacy, the Fundació Antoni Tàpies has initiated a research project that includes all the contributions from people who were involved, in one way or another, with the history of this publishing house.
The Fundació Antoni Tàpies will remain closed from Monday 17 through Monday 24 October 2016 for the purpose of setting up the next exhibitions.

1989 After the Conversations of Algiers. Delirium and Truce, is a Case Study exhibition within the Peace Treaty project organised as part of the San Sebastian 2016, European Capital of Culture. It is hosted by the Artium in Vitoria-Gasteiz and by the Fundació Antoni Tàpies in Barcelona.
The work of Tàpies from this period took on a distinctly social and political tone. In the late 1960s and during the 1970s he made a series of works that made reference to the reality of Spain under Franco.
