Exhibition

The exhibition offers an approach to this historical moment from the perspective of photography, addressing radically different areas and views.

In the exhibition, which was presented at the Les Rencontres d’Arles festival in summer, you can see vintage photographs by Alberto García-Alix, Ouka Leele, Pablo Pérez-Mínguez and Miguel Trillo.

After several decades of dictatorship and ostracism, the Spanish transition saw the emergence of a new generation fascinated by modernity and the idea of ​​the new, which would crystallize into creators from different fields such as music, fashion, film, painting or photography.

They all lived together, crossed paths and, in their own way, each of them was a chronicler of La Movida. The exceptionality of the photography of that period is precisely its individual contribution, a reflection of the diversity of the worlds in which they turned and of their rich personalities from the photographic point of view and that give as a result a polyhedral look on that moment.
