The Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation and the Spanish Cultural Center present a collection of 35 pieces by the well-known Spanish photographer and photojournalist Isabel Muñoz. The works focus on dance as a mechanism of liberation to escape moral repression on traditional society. The images, all of them in black and white, aim to tell a story on the body's condition in our society. They explain a context in which dance, has been for both men and women a way of expressing understated matters, unthinkable thoughts and a vehicle to express ourselves in a different fashion within the same context beyond artistic expression.
The show summarizes the content of previous works of the photographer from Barcelona, Spain on tango in Buenos Aires, flamenco in Spain or oriental dance in Turkey or Egypt.
The pictures, taken in places from Burkina Fasso to Irán, and Cuba to Buenos Aires, play to confuse the male and female body, highlighting the most characteristic gestures of every place.
