The second volume of Keys to reading the Collection addresses the Spanish and international artistic practices in a temporal arch of three decades (from the 60s to the 80s). The Museum faces the challenge of collection and generating narrations from practices that overflow or directly challenge traditional artistic media. The radicalism of the avant-garde art dialogues with the popular and the underground during a period that contests the frontiers between high and low culture. Meanwhile, feminism and the processes of decolonization open the field to new agents and new geographies of art.

The period from the 1960s to the 1980s, the years that the new rooms in the Collection explore, is when the political, social, cultural and technological changes that would give shape to the contemporary global situation took place: decolonization, the uprisings of '68, feminist movements, the economic crisis, the expansion of popular culture and the emergence of other peripheral modernisms.
