The activity will take place at Fundació Antoni Tąpies, where the posters produced by Barcelona secondary school pupils taking part in the 19th Cultural Programme Show (Visual Arts Education Department) will be displayed.
The educational programme Inner Worlds and Public Commitment, promoted by the Institute of Education of the Barcelona City Hall and Fundació Antoni Tąpies (Urban Majorities 1900-2025 Project, with the support of the Government of Catalonia’s Ministry for Culture and the Media) was launched in November 2006 with the exhibition Forms for the 21st Century. Recent Work by Antoni Tąpies, which displayed works by Tąpies in an unusual setting: the secondary school IES Barri Besņs.
Later, museum guides gave the young participants training sessions, and they visited a second show, The Posters of Antoni Tąpies and the Public Sphere (December 21, 2006 - February 25, 2007), at Fundació Antoni Tąpies, where they agreed to become “poster artists” for a day without succumbing to the temptation of imitating Tąpies himself.
Now, from May 17 to 20, the programme culminates with the exhibition of these posters by the young artists as part of the 19th Cultural Programme Show, under the aforementioned title of Barcelona, A Right for All. In a further exercise in creativity and citizenship, the boys and girls themselves will introduce their works to the public.
