La Spagna nelle prime Biennali veneziane del secondo dopoguerra
La ricezione della stampa
This essay aims to analyse the Spanish Pavilion at Venice Biennale in the years from 1948 to 1956. Rosalía Torrent calls this chronological arc años de travesía: from 1948 precisely because within the Biennales under Francoism (1938-76) it marks the passage to the commissioner of Luis González Robles, who materializes and exports a ‘modern’ image of Spain that justifies on a political level the tacit acceptance of the regime among the Western powers in defence of the ‘red danger’. The period shows the weakness of liberal hopes and the exploitation of art by the dictatorship.
