The theme of this room revolves around the installation inspired by Einstein's formula that defines the relationship between Space and Time.


This space is a place that requires us to rethink the traditional Museum concept, introducing us to other ways of presenting art and the interrelation of space and time. Here we find a museum presentation focused on the concept of art in a linear fashion, and striving to create links and spatial-temporal connections.

Space, in which cohabit works from very distant places and times, but that in a very particular way generates a dialogue and develops a discourse based on complementarities and entirety. The ethnographic pieces interact with contemporary works following the concept of the exhibition "Primitivism in 20th Century", produced by MOMA in New York in 1984 curated by William Rubin and the exhibition "The Magicians of the Earth" by Jean-Hubert Martin, at the Centre Pompidou and la Villette in Paris in 1989.

This recent underground room, called Sokrates, hosts a spectacular crystal curtain by Swarovski, composed of 10,000 pieces, a backdrop to a complete fossilised skeleton of a Siberian woolly rhinoceros (Coelodonta antiquitatis) dating from the Riss-upper Pleistocene Wurm interglacial period; works by Domenico Gnoli; Dolores Vita; Jannis Kounnelis; Gerhard Merz; José María Sicilia; The Majorcan artist Miquel Barceló (Felanitx, 1957), author of the new Chapel in the Palma Cathedral, with masks from Africa, Tibet and Nepal, pre-Columbian or anthropomorphic idols, as well as some works by Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu.

A journey that reveals another form of understanding art and its links with space and time.
