Make way for the unknown is one of the results of the right cube_04 project by Luz Broto made for BCN Producció'10 group exhibition and held at La Capella in Barcelona from September to November 2010. Following the format of the right cube works - site-specific interventions in exhibition spaces that make them permeable to everything outside of their four walls-, the project proposed to reopen all the apertures that were closed over more than thirty years since the space, an old church, had been turned into an exhibition hall while being isolated from the outside.

The book is presented as an historical account built from different data sources and it’s organized in a prologue and five chapters. It starts from the official history of the building, from the thirteenth century through its different uses and appearances until its convertion into an exhibition hall in the twenthieth century. These facts are related to the history derived from the project, from the process of opening and its consequences until its closure, together with black and white photographs that show the incidence of sunlight into the dark room during a day.
