Room 001.08 Floods of Reason in an Era of Change for Spain

Room?s details

In the Spain of the 1970s there was a move towards ‘schizoid’ approaches to reality, using figurative tools. Rather than being a return to the past, this painting style represented the cry of a generation that had grown up in urban surroundings (the rural exodus generation) which was searching, from the perspective of a clear sense of rootlessness, for some answers in changing times defined by the slow-motion collapse of a dictatorship, and a burning anxiety to build new personal liberties.
