18/04/2017

One Instagram account shared by museums around the world?

Casa Batlló has been chosen in this new edition of the Instagram account @52museums to show the masterful creativity of Antoni Gaudí to everyone. DFrom 20 – 23 April, 2017, Casa Batlló will manage this Instagram account that shows one or two museums from around the world every week.

52 Museums‘ is a project that was created in January 2016, by Mar Dixon who is also the author of other interesting projects like #AskACurator or #MuseumSelfie. Mar promoted this project to promote the cultural wealth of museums around the world through a single Instagram account.

During these days, Casa Batlló will announce the whole history of its creation, its location within the Discord block, information on the techniques applied as well as its brilliant architect Antoni Gaudí, all through this Instagram account. Explanations will also be given of all the inspirations that Gaudí took from nature to construct this World Heritage. Above all, we will share the the legend of Sant Jordi, celebrated on April 23 in Catalonia that Casa Batlló welcomes in different points of the architecture, both on the facade and inside the house.

Before Casa Batlló, the Musei di Fermo (Italy) will share its rich archaeological and artistic collections and after Casa Batlló the relay will be taken by The Postal Museum – @ thepostalmuseum- (United Kingdom) and Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum – @ cspioneersmuseum- United). In this edition of 2017, only  one other Spanish museum will take part, namely the Museum of Natural Sciences of Barcelona in autumn.

We are awaiting for you on Instagram!
