Room 001.04 Art and Politics at the End of Franco’s dictatorship

Room?s details

In the Spain of the 1970s, art became an environment for political demands that could not be expressed
elsewhere. New forms of intervention in the public sphere took the place of the collapsing experimental art as represented by the Encuentros de Pamplona (1972). The urgent need to create independent spaces for argument and discussion was reflected in the collective work of artists in Barcelona and Madrid, as Spanish society’s growing political activity began the journey towards the Transition.
