Room 408 Abstract Art: Geometry and Movement

Room?s details

In the context of the return to Geometrical and Kinetic Art in Paris in the second half of the fifties, the formation of Equipo 57 by a group of Spanish artists and architects based in the French capital entailed a reaction against the ubiquitousness of Art Informel and Lyrical Abstraction. At the same time, it implied adopting a particularly meaningful political stance in connection with the Franco regime. In an attempt to conform to the spirit of the times and the modes of industrial production this group proposed to construct reality through an objective and quantifiable geometric language divested of all individual traces.
