La Movida: Cronica de una agitación
From the year 1978 and during almost a decade, Madrid will be the origin and meeting point of a turmoil. La Movida was not an artistic movement. Nor did he have what is so common in any movement worth his salt, such as having a political manifesto or intentions. No, the Movida was an explosion. A youthful convulsion to start. The circumstances propitiated it. It left the ostracism and closure of the dictatorship and a restless layer of youth was launched to life. The images taken by Miguel Trillo, Pablo Pérez-Mínguez, Ouka Leele and Alberto García-Alix are the reference in photography of what happened. Not only were they witnesses, but also, actors involved. In a few years, what began with the drive, humility and precariousness of young self-taught, took root and mutated in modernity. It affected all layers of Spanish society. La Movida had its own creation and a visual imaginary to unite it to the heart of time.
