The present edition recalls the different strategies developed by three artistic collectives (Octaedro, Los Otros & Axioma) that were active during the dictatorship to the recuperation of democracy (1973-1985) and that studied today from an adequate distance, present themselves as inescapable background of a rupture that occurred as a reaction to a prevailing conservative art and new ways to address the artistic profession. These three groups represent the strength and emphasis on the experimental, joining a collaborative and procedural art. "An era that is mainly rescued through the testimony of its protagonists, since saved texts included in catalogues and some press notes, the literature on this period in particular is practically zero" (Our translation) -Verso Cover.
