Reina Sofia

A museum’s collection intrinsically traces notions of history and time. But what history or histories do we tell? The museum exhibits centuries of art history by a new approach. The traditional approach aims to explain works of art with documents and testimonies from an era without understanding that the images and objects far surpass the circumstances from which they were born. The museum has chosen to distance itself from the linear narratives of modernity, as they have traditionally been exhibited. The museum organised the permanent exhibitions along four large sections that follow a historical sequence, without wishing to impose a strict chronological order upon them. These groupings propose alternative routes and lines of flight that leave the narrative open-ended. In this manner, visitors are invited to create their own routes and form their own interpretations.
