Event Details : 'Goya: Chronicler of All Wars. The Disasters and War Photography', places the figure of Goya as forerunner of photojournalism by using photography to bring Goya’s legacy closer to the present day. It is the war reporters who have taken on the same denouncement, who can be considered inheritors of the famous painter’s commitment. The 82 aquatint etchings that make up the series Los Desastres de la Guerra (The Disasters of War) illustrate the rawness and savagery of war, in this case, the Peninsular War (1808 – 1814), with prints of unrestricted severity and an underlying condemnation of the senselessness of war and its devastating consequences. This is exactly the universal message that Goya wanted to convey and that, through the photographs of yesterday’s and today’s war reporters, still condemns armed conflicts. The series of prints is completed with a selection of photographs of the Spanish Civil War from the archives of the Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid (National Library of Madrid) that demonstrate the universal power of the images of Los Desastres. The Spanish Civil War had tremendous international press coverage by extraordinary correspondents such as Robert Capa, David Seymour and Hans Namuth, as well as important Spanish photographers such as Agustí Centelles and Alfonso Sánchez. Using photography’s different applications from each time period, photographic documents of the main wars can be seen on this journey through the history of photojournalism, from the first correspondent sent to the Crimean War who photographed a war as organized as a military operation, to the Pulitzer and World Press Photo prizes, that harshly depict the images of the current conflicts covered in the press. It is the chronicle of images for our collective memory that has become an archive of the most terrible moments of our time.
