The Estampa Popular and the critical image movements in Spain

Gallery conversation

During the Franco dictatorship, a series of political and artistic movements emerged and assumed a position of antagonism to the regime. On this occasion, two of the Museum's exhibition rooms will be visited: the first is the one dedicated to Estampa Popular, a movement that favoured art that was involved with the world, that was comprehensible and accessible, far from the elitism of the abstract avant-garde.

The second room presents cases such as Equipo Crónica, Equipo Realidad and Eduardo Arroyo, who, in the mid 1960s, during the period of economic development under Franco, used a critical figuration that ran counter to the individualism so present in the abstraction of that period.

  • Guided visit Guernica. The history of an icon
    January 1 - December 31, 2016

    The purpose of this activity is to help visitors understand how and why Guernica by Pablo Picasso (Málaga, 1881- Mougins, 1973) has become a symbol of Spain's transition to democracy and a universally recognised icon. The narrative goes beyond traditional interpretations and uncovers the multiplicity of factors and implications related to the artistic act.
