Exhibition: 'L'Oceà parla. Noves ecologies i economies del mar [The Ocean Speaks. New Ecologies and Economies of the Sea]


An exhibition that analyses the effects of human activity on marine ecosystems, reflecting on how the city can redesign its relationship with the sea through a discourse grounded in innovation.

Barcelona's opening up to the sea was one of the great structural changes that redefined the city in the 1990s. Now, the climate crisis is forcing the city to rethink its relationship with the marine world, and the ecosystems that are a part of it. The exhibition takes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject, looking at it from the perspectives of architecture, fashion, technology, speculative design and urban planning, all disciplines capable of proposing new imaginaries for the great challenges that society is facing. 

Taking as its starting point the history of the relationship between a city - Barcelona - and its waterfront, this exhibition explores the conflicts and circumstances that are replicated in coastal communities around the world, where 40% of the population, and a large part of the most highly valued land, are concentrated.
