Edited by Teresa Grandas

Published by MACBA


Hard Gelatin takes a look at the Spanish situation in the eighties by reconsidering the stories generated during this period and questioning them from today's perspective. This exhibition spans the period from 1977 to 1992, although on occasions it necessarily exceeds these limits. It looks at a series of social, political and economic events in history, and at the same time presents the work of a number of groups, cultural activists and artists who adopted refutation, irony and questioning as subversive and dissenting stances. The exhibits include features lms, documentaries, television programmes, magazines, comics, fanzines, artworks, exercises in anti-art and other materials.
