The facets of Antoni Campañà

The Museu Nacional inaugurates on March 18 the exhibition ‘The Endless War’ with Campañà’s photographs taken during the Civil War.

Antoni Campañà can be defined as a photographer of contrasts and is recognised as one of the representatives of Catalan pictorialism. In 2018, his family found a series of photographs that Campañà took during the Civil War, and these are the ones that the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya collects in the new exhibition that will open on March 18: ‘The endless war’, an exhibition that will discover the different facets of the photographer. The pictures were found inside a box, where there were about a hundred that saw the light for the first time. A box that is now known as "the red box" and is an invaluable contribution to the Civil War.

Militiawomen, refugees arriving from Málaga to Barcelona in 1937, buildings in ruins after bombing raids, communal dinning halls or Durruti’s burial are some of the images you can see in the exhibition, as well as some of the previous to the war, from the pictorialist stage, also donated by the family. You can see them at the Museu Nacional until July 18.

The general admission to the museum is 12 euros and is open from Tuesday to Sunday, including public holidays, except on 1 May. Here you will find practical information about the visit.
