The title of the exhibition Entre/Between (Museo Reina Sofía, November 23, 2011 – March 26, 2012) underlines the tendency shown by Muntadas to position himself and address contemporary reality's discourses and structures from the vantage point of the cracks and folds existing in society. The exhibition is organised around the idea of nine thematic constellations that, overlapping and continuing to present day (the last of the constellations includes the installation Situación 2011 , produced specifically for the occasion), draw connections and open new lines of reflection in his artwork.

At this round table, the artist, theorists and project participants debate the entire exhibition, from its narrative components up through its spatial arrangement and the way it speaks to the public.
