As part of the broader and delocalized proposal The bee who forgot the honey, the Museu d’Història de Catalunya presents the collective exhibition Línies de fuga, a reflection that focused on the historical-political and social dimension of the concept of landscape, understood in this case as a common imaginary, an element that at the same time builds us and that we build as a society and as a citizen. Landscape turns here into the reflection of our incomplete condition whether it is symbolizing our preconceived ideas -as in Taus Makhacheva’s humorous videos-, our personal memories – Jon Rafman’s work- or historical and environmental issues -for example Guido van der Werve or Gelare Khoshgozaran.
It is a collective exhibition in which a number of artists elaborate on contemporary issues related to ecology, transhumanism or the value of the image.
Like a vanishing line, ever visible but unattainable – ideal but impossible -, in this case, the landscape is presented as something we destroy but must protect, something we seek but cannot find, an obstacle that limits us but that we can sometimes unwittingly surpass. This display approches the way in which men address landscapes or how they become the reflection of an ideology, a collective imagination or a sphere of intimacy.
