For years, contemporary photography and video art have played a substantial role in Spain's avant-garde culture. As curator Estelle af Malmborg writes in this volume, In just a few decades, a closed society, trapped in its past, has been transformed into a multifaceted country in which contemporary culture enjoys a strong position.
Spanish photography does not shy away from personal expression. Those who lived in Spain in the 1980s experienced first-hand the major political, social and cultural changes. The sociocultural movement La Movida, with the film director Pedro Almodovar as it's front figure, released a wave of suppressed creativity and tested the boundaries of freedom. The explosive Spanish culture of the 1980s expressed itself in many ways, but a common feature was an interest in capturing the intellectual currents of the rest of Europe, while, at the same time, relating to one's own cultural heritage.
