The Museu Picasso of Barcelona launches a new experience of academic collaboration. Jointly organised with the School of Photography of the IEFC (Institute of Photographic Studies of Catalonia) and the Department of Design and Image of the Fine Arts Faculty of the UB (University of Barcelona), some workshops of photography are offered. The workshops are aimed at the students of both institutions and are not open to the general public.

A selection of the projects from the workshops will be exhibited on the Museu Picasso as a complement of the temporary exhibition.
