This year Christmas is coming to us with the bitter taste of the crisis and the year we’re about to welcome in is not loaded down with good news either. Aware that we cannot stand on the sidelines of such a reality, at the CCCB we wish to make that quite clear. Perhaps, despite these being very tough times, we should send out a message of optimism.

This is why we asked the artist Josep Maria Rius (Joma) to design the Christmas Card for this year and Maria Padró Casas to produce it.

In this video Christmas card, Joma draws us the arrival of an infant new year that has just been born. This spreads a ray of optimism to make us feel a little lighter when going down this path that looks as though it will be tough and hard-hitting.

¿Qué será… será? Welcome 2012

From the CCCB we wish you season’s greetings with these two Christmas carols produced by the audiovisuals team.

¿Qué será… será? sings Wax Taylor, whatever will be will be… The only thing we know is that 2012 will be, and for that reason we want to wish you a happy new year with this video-postcard. The piece includes fragments of Things to Come, a film from the year 1936 directed by W.Cameron Menzies with script by H.G.Wells, which considers the doubts and fears of a metropolis under threat.

A happier version of the holidays is that given to us by some peculiar camera operators wishing us a Merry Christmas from different spots around the planet (material from the Prelinger Archives). The tour of Christmas postcard scenes ends up in a place well known to all of us.
