The name of this exhibition combines the titles of the two works presented in the gallery: the first is Prova Rebutjada by Joan Brossa, which was previously on display at the MACBA, and the second is Tout va Bien by Antoni Muntadas. The two artists’ works are displayed together in this exhibition due to their similar social and political themes. The exhibition provides an exploration of how words and their poetic form can determine political position, which is a common thread between the two collections. Brossa’s Prova Rebutjada is visual poetry in the form of drawings or sculptures that construct a surreal reality. In Tout va Bien, on the other hand, Muntada uses public images and footage to explore the world of media and its relation to power strategies. He combines iconic images with popular slogans from the media to create an ironic insight into how the media holds power and influence over audiences—whether it be political, religious, economic or cultural. The result of this artistic collaboration is a linguistic exploration of politics and power.
