Through the figures of emblematic spies, from Mata Hari to Carrie Mathison, and from OSS117 to Edward Snowden, this exhibition explores a new history of the relationship between cinema and espionage. It establishes as a starting point a mirror game between the two disciplines, practices par excellence involving capture, simulacrum and dissimulation.


The exhibition will travel to the CaixaForum in Madrid (from October 29, 2023 to June 29, 2023) and in Barcelona (from March 31, 2023 to November 29, 2024).
