Museu de l’Art Prohibit

Censored art in a Modernista palace

Casa Garriga Nogués (Barcelona)

This recently opened private museum occupies the beautiful Casa Garriga Nogués, built by Enric Sagnier for banker Rupert Garriga Miranda and his family in 1901. The balcony on the main is supported by four female figures sculpted by Eusebi Arnau representing the four stages of life.

The building now holds the world’s first and only collection of censored art that has been banned for whatever reason (sex, politics and religion mainly)...including thought-provoking works by Banksy, Warhol, Picasso, Goya, Ai Weiwei, Mapplethorpe, Klimt, Miquel Barceló, and Haring.
