The Fundació Joan Miró (Joan Miró Foundation) exists to promote awareness of the work and personality of Joan Miró and to present exhibitions of artists from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries: an open door to the exchange of ideas and disciplines that, while always looking to the future, has both international prestige and deep roots in Catalonia.
The Fundació is located in an exceptional building designed by the architect Josep Lluís Sert. It stands in the Parc de Montjuïc, enjoying magnificent views over Barcelona, and houses the world’s largest public collection of Joan Miró paintings.
After forty years of existence, the Fundació Joan Miró (Joan Miró Foundation) is an essential point of reference for the study of Miró’s work.
Having established itself internationally as a major art institution, the Foundation also organises temporary exhibitions on all aspects of modern and contemporary art. In recent years it has put on shows devoted to Chillida, Giacometti, Warhol, Calder, Magritte, Rothko… More experimental works by younger artists have their own special area in the Espai 13, a pioneer of its kind in Barcelona.
Self-organization traces the genealogy of DIY practices from the pioneering artists of the 1960s to the present. Applying what could be considered as self-organisation strategies, these artists have gained control of the production, transmission and reception of their works with gestures of empowerment that have resulted in new ways of relating to the art system.
The works in the exhibition form a constellation of practices and gestures that advocate the ongoing power of the imagination and creativity.

‘À toute épreuve’, more than a book reconstructs the creative process behind Miró’s book based on a collection of poems by Paul Éluard with the same title. The exhibition is part of the Miró. Documents series, whose aim is to use the Fundació’s archive to further explore certain aspects of Miró’s work.
The layout and execution of À toute épreuve is a reflection of Miró’s connection with the poets of the 1920s, which led to major transformations in his visual language.
