L’Art in Guerre, history and art
The fact is that now we have to talk about one of the most anticipated exhibitions of 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 those attending. Shows, from Picasso to Dubuffet, the context of oppression experienced 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 official slogans by modifying the content of the art with novel aesthetic responses.
More than 500 works of a hundred artists help us to know a little more about these geniuses who resisted and reacted to injustices "Making war on war". They used casual shapes and 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 sponsor this highly recommended exhibition that we invite you to enjoy. For more information we recommend you take a look at the Facebook and Twitter profiles of the Guggenheim Museum.
