The book “Vanguardia y crítica de arte en la España de Franco” (La balsa de la Medusa, 2021) by Paula Barreiro López studies art criticism and avant-garde art in the years 1940-1975-76.
This book is the result of the homonymous project in which Marta Echaves, Antonio Gómez Villar and María Ruido have been working since 2017, gathering a proposal launched by the direction of La Virreina Centre de la Imatge.
The volume edited by Paula Barreiro López is the result of a collective research work developed over the last three years within the framework of MoDe(s) project. It brings together fifteen texts based on case studies and documentary sources so far unpublished that address forms of mediation, dissent and resistance to the Cold War’s ideological and aesthetic schism.
