Dear friends,

I was trapped by this painter new exhibition in Barcelona. Apart, the fact that I have never been in Protected content , have ilutioned me to create this.

This time I already booked the ENGLISH GUIDED TOUR, because I want to understand better the painter and I think this will add a Plus and will also allow us to friendly spend this nice time together. OUR GUIDED TOUR WILL BEGIN at 11:30h and will take 1 hour.
After this, I propose all together visit of the Monastery and finish the morning with A Drink and a Chat!

----------------------------- Protected content

THE PRICE will GO DOWN depending how many we are.
I need to Pre-pay 15 days before, 70 euros x 20 persons. I'm going to risk this time as we are always a minimum of 10. Last exhibition we were 20.
So, if we were 20, we would pay 3'50 euros per person and if we are 10 persons, we will pay 7 euros. We will divide the Monastery Guided Group Price of 70 euros per the number of persons we are.
So PLEASE, BE VERY SERIOUS in adding and also, CANCEL your attendance if you can't, to allow the people in the waiting list to join and to help me with the organisation.

Life or Theater? Charlotte Salomon (Berlin Protected content Protected content
Charlotte Salomon ( Protected content ), Jewish artist, was only twenty-six years old when she was deported and exterminated in Auschwitz. Her life, short but intense, was marked by love, death and a family history of suffering that led her to take refuge in art as a cathartic and salvation path. Through the Protected content that make up the exceptional work Life? or theater ? -a wide selection of which is presented in this exhibition-, Charlotte Salomon sought to describe her life to find herself, to overcome the past and to try to live an ephemeral present on the eve of the Holocaust.

The exhibition: Life? or Theater? Charlotte Salomon. Berlin, Protected content , Protected content take place at the Royal Monastery of Santa Maria de Pedralbes from October 17, Protected content February 17, Protected content , curated by Ricard Bru, doctor in History of Art and Professor of the Department of Art and Musicology of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, ​​in collaboration with the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam.

The conceptual script of the exhibition fits in the program of the Monastery of Pedralbes, one of the main lines of research of which is the dissemination of gender and spirituality studies, especially of silenced women. From this point of view, the exhibition: "Life? or Theater? Charlotte Salomon. Berlin, Protected content , Protected content the unique work of an artist denied and forgotten until a few decades ago, which, nevertheless, is the vivid, intense and evocative reflection of an entire age.

Life or theater? is a true work of total art where painting, theater, literature and music come together. It is a dramatic and structured autobiography as if it were a theatrical work or a musical comedy divided into three acts (prologue, body and epilogue), where the names of the characters are slightly altered to reality and with fictitious elements that transform the vital experience of the artist in a dramatic, cathartic and redeeming story. Life or theater? is made up of Protected content , of which Protected content be presented to the Monastery of Pedralbes. The work, full of references to operas, melodies and popular songs, illustrates the passion for music and its formal conception seems inspired by the cinematographic language. At the same time, in many of the scenes, Charlotte Salomon overlaid transparencies with comments, dialogues and descriptions that help us to understand the whole story narrative. Thus, she achieved a unique, ambitious and moving work of art that combined image with music and words in order to become a unique artistic contribution to the cultural memory of 20th century Europe.

Looking very much forward to sharing this with all of you!
