Quan la gent s'ajuda

People tend to group together according to tastes, interests and also needs, which can be caused by an infinite number of variables. Some of them are generated by trades. When people help each other is a retrospective look at the importance of the guilds in Barcelona from various point of view, such as devotional, professional, mutual aid… It also evokes the trail they have left in different parts of the city, where we can still see and feel their presence, nowadays very much migrated. This exhibition also aims to use this look at the city’s past as a starting point to understand the present. The twenty-first century society continues to generate inequality and vulnerability, and that is why people continue to organise themselves on the basis of horizontal solidarity and mutual aid.
