This video, made in conjunction with the Museo Reina Sofía’s participation at the Ars Electronica Festival 2021, sketches out the journey to the inside of Guernica, starting with the study of bibliographical sources around the picture’s composition and conservation, continuing with the comprehensive X-ray of the work and ending with the project using gigapixel technology that got under way in 2011. Not only has this technology enabled greater definition, to the nearest millimetre, to be obtained, revealing micro-cracks, small holes or craquelure in the painting, it has also made analysis possible by virtue of new approaches to Pablo Picasso’s work which are capable of involving the audience and carrying on its journey.
