LIBERXINA, Pop and New Artistic Behaviours, 1966-1971

LIBERXINA, Pop and New Artistic Behaviours, 1966-1971
Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. From November 16, 2018 to April 22, 2019
The artistic proposals that were produced in Catalonia during the second half of the 1960s, which shared the ideals of generational renewal and revolution that broke out in several international centres, will be presented in this show, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of May 1968. In his Treatise on Living for the Younger Generations (1967), Raoul Vaneigem spoke of entering “a whole new era”. In One-Dimensional Man (1964), Herbert Marcuse asserted the emergence of the “great rejection” as the beginning of a cultural revolt that would transform society from top to bottom. It is a portrait of a moment of tension and enthusiasm that opened the doors to a new sensibility.
