”la Caixa” Foundation presents its programme for the 2021-2022 season: 31 shows at CaixaForum and CosmoCaixa cultural centres and 9 travelling exhibitions that will tour Spain and Portugal. Of these 40 titles, 15 will premiere in the new season.

The novelties include the following projects: a dialogue between fashion and cinema, created by the enfant terrible of design, Jean Paul Gaultier; a journey through the most outstanding comic books in history; a vindication of the artistic dimension of the tattoo from a historical and anthropological perspective; an exploration of the techniques used to preserve mummies through six real examples; a major exhibition devoted to Magritte; and a tribute to the genius of the inventor Nikola Tesla.

One of the main events in the coming season will take place in July 2022 with the inauguration of the new CaixaForum València, which will join the other nine cultural centres currently managed by ”la Caixa” Foundation. This network is widely recognised as the embodiment of a unique model for the dissemination of knowledge, culture and science.

Moreover, science will conquer audiences thanks to shows devoted to the Sun and to mammoths, as well as a new exhibition space that will enable visitors to discover the microscopic world.

The aim of the new programme is to offer extraordinary, disruptive experiences, to contribute to the recovery of our spirits and to suggest reflection, rethinking the future from a transversal perspective that combines the promotion of both culture and science. The programme includes initiatives produced in cooperation with such leading international institutions as the British Museum, the Centre Pompidou, the Cinémathèque Française, the Prado Museum and the Science Museum, London, exploring both ancient history and our recent past, but also focusing on the future of art and science.
