The publication Passió i cartografia per a un incendi dels ulls is the poetic colophon of “Panorama 21: Notes for an Eye Fire” the exhibition that took place at MACBA Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona, between October 2021 and February 2022.

The book includes a new poem-dérive by Gabriel Ventura that decomposes the exhibition’s plurality of voices into a textual topography. As part of the exhibition’s public programme, on January 13, 2022, Ventura and the flamenco singer Pere Martínez recited and sang the verses during a unique performative event that took visitors through the museum galleries.

Designed by Ana Domínguez Studio, the book also features photo-documentation of the exhibition, as well as a ghostly evocation of its graphic identity—translucent pages that seem to veil the images and words with billowing smoke clouds and flashes of energy.
