The exhibition presents the comic books and the diversity of languages, aesthetic registers and cultural references of nine creators who, with their use of colour, graphics, and stylistic and narrative experimentation, challenge the established comic-book form.Bàrbara Alca, Marta Cartu, Genie Espinosa, Ana Galvañ, Nadia Hafid, Conxita Herrero, María Medem, Miriampersand and Roberta Vázquez make up the constellation of creative universes that is this exhibition.

Free admission to the exhibiton "Sade"

Sade was a clandestine and censored writer who was imprisoned, but is now a classic of French literature. He was acclaimed as a revolutionary who supported freedom, whilst arousing scandal and outrage. The exhibition looks at the stereotypes associated with his name and explores the aesthetic, philosophical and political implications of his legacy. Sade challenges us to confront the most disturbing aspects of human nature.
