Thematic

What makes a daily used object turns into a hidden hero?
It has to do with something related with an invented idea but easily comprehensible. The hidden heroes are objects that have been manufactured million times but that keep on being indispensable in our daily life. They are objects that have showed their value ones and again and that, in essence, have remained unalterable during decades or, said in another way, are classical daily objects.
With the objects, the images and the videos that are presented in this exhibition we pretend to show four particularly interesting appearances:
The innovation: the fascinate history of the invention of these objects.
The production: the technical conditions of their successful manufacture on a large scale.
The evolution: the historical development and the amazing diversity of models and variations that have generated.
The inspiration: the aesthetics that continues inspiring the work of artists and designers.
