Jointly organised by Fundació Palau de Caldes d’Estrac and Arts Santa Mònica, La Revolta Poètica 1964-1982 (The Poetic Revolt 1964-1982) is the result of research that has allowed a large amount of unpublished materials to see the light of day (photographs, drawings, handwritten and typewritten documents, magazines and illustrated books) with a dynamic language that recreates the atmosphere of those years and connects it with the world today.
This exhibition is a story of enthusiasm. Between 1964 and 1982, a trend of cultural renewal arose in Catalonia, the Valencian Community and the Balearic Islands that featured poetry and poets. This is what we’ve called the Poetic Revolt. At a time marked by crisis and the end of Francoism, the poets declared a vital commitment: a burst of imagination and creation in the face of the politicised art of the post-war period.
The Poetic Revolt 1964-1982 sketches the map of this phenomenon for the first time: is beginnings in the 1960s, in contact with pop culture, the festivals that brought poetry to the people, the magazines that served as a space for communication between poets and artists and the publishing paradise of the 1970s, when collections and editions multiplied.
The exhibition covers its history and trends, shows the relations between poets, artists and singers and discusses the search for new forms of expression, meeting points and controversies. It does this based on research work that allows a large amount of unpublished materials to see the light of day (photographs, drawings, handwritten and typewritten documents, magazines and illustrated books) with a dynamic language that recreates the atmosphere of those years and connects it with the world today.
