A unique opportunity for enlarging our knowledge of design, ceramics and fashion

This Design Museum opens the season with three new courses on design led by professionals and experts in each sector. We offer you a summary:

Course ‘History of Furniture. 20th and 21st  Centuries’
A course organised by the Association for the Study of Furniture with the collaboration of the Museum, covering the complex period of the 20th and 21st centuries, which are considered especially interesting stages for the history of furniture because of the economic, social and cultural changes that have affected art, architecture and design during this period.
A course in a dual presential and online format to gain in-depth knowledge of all these changes, the relationship between Catalan design and international design, and to go beyond a vision based merely on stylistic categories.

From Monday 25 October 2021 to 30 May 2022.

Course ‘Introduction to the history of the dress’
A journey through the history of the dress from ancient times to the present day, to study the evolution of the forms of the dress and the way they interact with contemporary creation.
Structured into 17 sessions dealing with aspects like the contemporary creation of the dress or its treatment as heritage, placing the exhibition ‘The Dressed Body: Silhouettes and Fashion (1550-2015)’ as the principal example.
With experts like Sílvia Ventosa, Albert Díaz or Laura Casal-Valls.

From 8 November 2021 to 21 March 2022.

Course ‘Introduction to the history of ceramics’
In collaboration with the Catalan Ceramics Association, we propose a journey through the history of Spanish ceramics, showing how the technical procedures of the past link with modern production and contemporary creation.
A theoretical and practical course consisting of eight sessions and two visits that combine history with other important aspects of the world of ceramics, such as techniques, materials or methods of restoration and documentation.

From 2 November 2021 to 18 January 2022.
