Sebald Variations

The exhibition Sebald Variations at the Centre for Contemporary Culture, Barcelona, was one of the exhibition highlights of 2015 so far, and probably better than 90% of what is on show in Venice this year. On show until 26 July, it is definitely worth catching for anyone visiting Barcelona. Highlights include two excellent films by Guido van der Werve and Josiah McElheny, as well as photographs by Susan Hiller and materials from Seabed's own archives. There was not an exhibition catalogue as such, but a free newspaper with short texts by curator Jorge Carrion. There was also an extensive programme of lectures, readings, performances and other events, all of which had already taken place before I visited the exhibition.

The exhibition blog is well worth a visit:  http://kosmopolis.cccb.org/en/sebaldiana/
