Sota la Bomba (Be Bomb)

I had the opportunity to visit this amazing exhibition at MACBA (Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona). The paintings, videos and animations document the post-war political and cultural life in the USA and France, in the particular period of 1946 to 1956, showing the euphoria of the liberation and reconstruction following Second World War and the shadows of the Cold War.
