Marko Daniel, director of the Miró Foundation in Barcelona, explores how places – Barcelona, Mont-roig del Camp, Paris, Mallorca – and turbulent times – the Spanish Civil War, World War II, the Franco dictatorship – shaped the man and the artist.

This week's Catalan phrase is one uttered by Miró: 'Jo vull assassinar la pintura', or 'I want to kill painting'.
