In conjunction with the exhibition Graphic Turn. Like the Ivy on a Wall, a new series comprising three Graphic Bursts is organised. Some of the artists’ collectives that are part of this exhibition enliven workshops which seek to create dialogue between graphic strategies of resistance brought from Latin America and different political protests carried out today in Spanish territories by collectives making up the Museo Situado network.

Graphic Bursts 5. The Poetic Activism of Colour, with colour added by the Argentinian collective Cromoactivismo, aims to collectively produce hand-painted cardboard posters which serve as tools to grant visibility for social campaigns. On this occasion, work is carried out specifically with the campaign #ESenciales* #RegularizacionYa (#ESsential* #RegularisationNow), which fights to obtain the extraordinary regularisation of 500,000 people in an irregular administrative situation and who cannot exercise their rights in the Spanish State.

Cromoactivismo is a group which carries out interventions through colour, poetically and transversally, at political-social events. The group is made up of artists Marina De Caro, Guillermina Mongan, Victoria Musotto, Daiana Rose and Mariela Scafati. Since 2013, they have worked with collectives, groups and schools in direct actions, promoting poster art encounters (chromoactivations), in which they produce hand-painted cardboard posters which are then taken out to the streets or sometimes produced directly in the context in which the interventions will be carried out.
