Room 404 Humour, Irrationality and Play

Room?s details

This room bears witness to a dialogue held between two cultural movements which, directly after the end of the Civil War, outwardly defied the hegemonic cultural paradigm: Postism and the magazine La Codorniz. This defiance did not constitute a direct confrontation with dictatorial power, whereby artists would always tend to be at a disadvantage, but instead employed humour, the search for irrationality and play, either to create strategic distance from the most direct reality or as a form of somewhat transgressive, although not ideologically dissident, expression.
