Guggenheim museum
The Guggenheim Museum is one of the most visited in Spain year after year. Its history, its mission, its vision and its values ​​make it a unique contemporary art museum. Bilbao can boast of a brilliant architectural gem that hides sculptured works in the minds of some of the most creative artists in the world.

In October 1997 it opened its doors to the public for the first time and today we can say that it has far exceeded all expectations. It has contributed and in what way to the urban, economic and social regeneration of the city of Bilbao. It has become an example to be followed by other cities that dream of having such a prestigious museum.

L’Art en Guerre , history and art

The fact is that now we have to talk about one of the most anticipated exhibitions in recent times. L’Art en Guerre, which can be seen from March 16 to September 8, 2013, will remain at the Guggenheim Museum to the delight of the audience. It shows, from Picasso to Dubuffet , the context of oppression that was lived in France during the Second World War and the Nazi Occupation between 1938 and 1947. The artists of the time had the courage to rebel against the official slogans by modifying the content of the art with novel aesthetic responses.

More than 500 works by a hundred artists help us to learn a little more about these geniuses who resisted and reacted to injustices "by making war against war . " They used forms and casual materials adapting to conditions of hardship and no expression of freedom, but they managed to capture everything they lived so that no one ever forgets it.

The BBVA Foundation sponsors this highly recommended exhibition that we invite you to enjoy. For more information, we recommend taking a look at the Guggenheim Museum’s Facebook and Twitter profiles.
