Room 206.10 Surrealism in the Art of Spanish Exiles

Room?s details

The Spanish diaspora after the victory of Franco was projected into so many different circumstances and situations that it is impossible to identify a culture of exile as such. Besides the trauma of being uprooted and the nostalgia which indelibly marked the work of many, some artists, intellectuals, architects and writers managed to pick up their careers in their host nations, such as Mexico, Argentina, the Soviet Union and France, contributing actively to the local scene and responding to international trends on the basis of their experiences during the Republican period.
