From the Spanish Republic to Exile: The Networks of Spanish Art

April 8 – May 14, 2013 - 7:00 p.m. /
Nouvel Building, Auditorium 200

This post-graduate course, associated with the research project "After the Republic: networks and two-way paths in Spanish art from 1931 to 1981" (National Plan for Research, Development and Innovation HAR2011-25864), is conceived as an introduction to the evolution, creation, promotion and historiographic fate of Spanish art, in times of peace and war and both within and outside the country, over a period of five decades. The period examined spans the Republic, the Civil War and dictatorship-exile.

Starting with the milestone of the Second Spanish Republic, the course explores, using an interdisciplinary and global perspective, the networks and the creative, social and political structures that gave rise to different contacts at the national and international levels. These networks and two-way paths facilitated both the circulation of artists, works and ideas, and also multiple contacts between creators, intellectuals and disciplines, all of which determined the directions that art would follow in Spain.

Starting with the milestone of the Second Spanish Republic, the course, using an interdisciplinary and global perspective, explores the networks and the creative, social and political structures that gave rise to diverse cultural connections at the national and international levels. These networks, as sites of reciprocal exchange between different countries, not only facilitated the circulation of artists, works and ideas, but also encouraged the creation of multiple contacts between artists, intellectuals and disciplines, all of which determined the directions that art would follow in Spain.

The course seeks to recover that creative memory that began with the Second Spanish Republic, became polarized during the Civil War, and diverged, generating two disjointed, and seemingly differently, currents—one inside the country and another in the life of exile. Therefore, the course is divided into four large blocks – the Republic, the Civil War, the Exile and the Franco dictatorship – which will be used to explain some of the lines of research currently in progress, while focusing on both theoretical and practical and critical aspects. In order to broaden historiographic, investigative and critical horizons concerning Spanish art and foment debate, this course is organized into three theoretical sessions, with a guided practical session in the Museum's galleries, and a round table discussion for each of the blocks within the course. The goal is to encourage reflection about a historical period that, while deemed gloomy in comparison to its margins –the Republic, on the one hand, and the transition to democracy on the other –is nonetheless closely connected to the present.
