Francesc Tosquelles

Museums Night 2022

Free entry to the exhibition and Poetry Slam

Free with pre-booking

The Museums' Night this year is held on May 14th with the "Francesc Tosquelles. Like a Sewing Machine in a Wheat Field" exhibition open to the public, with free admission, and a Poetry Slam. We advise you to reserve your ticket in advance for both activities.

The exhibition takes a look at the avant-garde practices that the psychiatrist Francesc Tosquelles carried out in the therapeutic, political and cultural field. Tosquelles transformed psychiatric institutions during the Republic and in fascist Europe. Today, he is an inspiration when addressing mental health policies in times of extreme crisis.

On the other hand, the Poetry Slam is 50% poetry and 50% performance, a poetic competition with an agile, dynamic and participatory format in which a new relationship is established between the public and the poets and a platform for contemporary artistic creation that uses the word as essential element.

This activity is part of Francesc Tosquelles
