    • La Relació de Duoda Art Collection and Research Forum
    • La Relació de Duoda Art Collection and Research Forum

    • La Relació de Duoda Art Collection and Research Forum was created in 2000 by a group of women professors, lecturers, researchers and students at Duoda Centre for Women’s Research. From the outset, the project counted on the direct involvement of the artist Elena del Rivero. The collection itself grew from donations of paper-based supporting materials given by contemporary artists invited by Duoda to create art installations, which were initially held in Barcelona’s women’s bookshop Pròleg. The paper-based collection, which is kept at Duoda, gave rise to the Research Forum, which gathers together the written and visual materials generated by the works and makes the collection a lively source of political thought and practice in the field of difference feminism.

    • Miquel Porter i Moix Collection
    • Miquel Porter i Moix Collection

    • The works on display show only a small sample of the Miquel Porter i Moix Collection, an extensive set of materials drawn from the fields of theatre, music, film and film preservation, which reflect the great breadth of sociocultural activities pursued by Miquel Porter, a lecturer and professor in the Department of History of Art at the University of Barcelona. The Miquel Porter i Moix Collection, which was donated to the University of Barcelona by Porter’s family, opens an expansive window onto the hard work undertaken to preserve and promote Catalan culture in the last twenty-five years of the Franco dictatorship and during the period of democratic transition that followed.

    • The Oriol Martorell Collection
    • The Oriol Martorell Collection

    • The Virtual Museum of the University of Barcelona presents the Oriol Martorell Collection. Oriol Martorell (1927-1996) was a musical director and teacher and this collection, donated to the University by Martorell's family soon after his death, constitutes one of the most complete archives on the history of twentieth-century Catalan choral music. During his life, Martorell combined his intense activity as a teacher with the direction of the Sant Jordi Choir. He was characterized by his active political allegiance to the Left and by his defence of Catalan culture and language, as the collection shows.
