  • Yves Klein: vídeos y performances
Despite being considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century, and recognized by historiography (especially since the 1980s) as a total artist in the sense of a forerunner of artistic movements such as minimalism , conceptual art or the same happening, an exclusive exhibition had never been devoted to the videos and performances of Yves Klein (1928-1962).

The exhibition shows the videos kept by the Klein archives in Paris, a special copy of which was published for the exhibition. Monochrome Propositions (1957) to the famous anthropometries of 1960 and 1961 in which the artist is fully aware of the power of the recording and therefore - in the words that Klein himself likes - the immaterialization of the artist.
