The aim is to raise awareness in visitors about the key role museums and other cultural centres can play in the development of society.

Signed up to the two events in Barcelona are a wide variety of centres whose specialisations include art, archeology, history, author, ethnology, paleontology, ceramics, zoology, movies, design and much more.
The starting point for this exhibition at Barcelona's Museu del Disseny is the role of art nouveau as the originator of design. A reinterpretation of the art déco movement that developed in Europe, and its Catalan offshoot, modernisme, based on the importance of the decorative, applied and industrial arts and crafts in design. The exhibition features lights, gold and silverware, decorative elements and unseen pieces by Gaudí to show the great splendour of the arts in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

From the hoods of the Ku Klux Klan to the masks of the Pussy Riot, the exhibition analyses how masks not only hide an identity, but they also create current phenomena.
