A very noticeable absence.

The new exhibition at CaixaForum Barcelona focuses on a certain absence: that of the iconic Mona Lisa, stolen in August 1911 and which evaporated into thin air for 30 months. During the embarrassing disappearance, the Louvre Museum tried everything to fill the void, but nothing helped: the public demanded the Mona Lisa, turning the painting into an object of worship in absentia.
The exhibition Una cierta oscuridad builds on this historical anecdote to challenge our relationship with images and examine how some pieces reach the rank of icons.
