Landscape has been a recurrent theme throughout art history; the avant-garde movements endowed it with new aesthetics and intentions, and today it is one of the fields explored by contemporary artists. As Joan Nogué writes in La construcción social del paisaje, the book from which this show takes its title, "The landscape can be interpreted as a social product, as the result of a collective transformation of nature and as the cultural projection of a society onto a given space". In that sense, "It not only shows us how the world is, but it is also a construct, a composition, a way of seeing the world”.
