Biographical forms. Construction and individual mythology

Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid

The aim of this exhibition is to examine biographical forms in modern art. Biography is a construct, whether it investigates historical reality or moves in the realm of invention. The exhibition looks at the constructive model of biography, as it has been applied to artistic activity, that uses documentary or fictitious elements; it is also an analysis of the experimental forms adopted by the question of the biographical subject, especially starting in the 1950s, with the expansion in art of the autobiography as an individual mythology.
