  • DESCRIPTION

    What makes an everyday object become an hidden hero?

    It must have something to do with an ingenious but easily understandable idea. Hidden heroes are objects that have been produced millions of times but are still indispensable in our daily lives. These are objects that have proved their worth time and time again and which have remained essentially unaltered for decades or, in other words, are everyday classics.

    With these objects, images and videos presented in this exhibition we hope to show four particularly interesting aspects:

    1. Innovation: the fascinating history of how these objects were invented.

    2. Production: the technical conditions of their successful large-scale production.

    3. Evolution: their historical development and the amazing diversity of models and variations generated.

    4. Inspiration: their appearance which continues to inspire the work of artists and designers.

    The "la Caixa" Foundation presents the travelling exhibition "Hidden heroes. Brilliant inventions. Everyday objects", an exhibition with a lot to reveal.
