Room 428 The Critical Image. Figuration in 1960s Spain

Room?s details

In the mid-1960s, during the time of developmentalism, there emerged in Spain a critical figuration movement in direct opposition to the individualism of abstraction, now the art of officialdom; a movement that was willing to use caustic sarcasm to analyze the cultural and political situation of the country at a time of fake openness. Valencian art groups Equipo Crónica and Equipo Realidad gave a Marxist reading of the mass media, and from Paris, Eduardo Arroyo made visual comments about Spain in a particularly bitter and acidic tone.
