520 8  This groundbreaking book surveys the shifts in the 
       aesthetic discourse and artistic practises that decisively
       influenced the shaping of the avant-garde during Franco's 
       dictatorship (1939-1975). On the basis of extensive, so 
       far unpublished, archival material, it discusses the 
       intellectual and cultural field as an important 
       battlefield for fighting the regime from within. The study
       opens with a comprehensive historical overview on the 
       cultural world from the end of the Spanish Civil War 
       throughout Francoism and reveals for the first time the 
       broader intellectual and cultural context of vanguard art 
       considering the special relations and negotiation 
       processes between artist, critics and institutions during 
       a major gap in the historiography of post-war Spanish 
       culture: the late Franco dictatorship (1959-1975). It then
       analyses in depth the important role that a group of art 
       critics played as theoreticians and peers in key artistic 
       movements from the 1950s onwards. Using their extensive 
       international networks in the midst of the Cold War period,
       they decisively influenced the aesthetic and cultural 
       debates of their time and very concretely helped shaping a
       completely new discourse for the avant-garde in Spain. 
       This book discusses the creation of this new discourse 
       that linked culture and ethics/politics and analyses its 
       impact on the intellectual and artistic landscape (visual,
       print and exhibition culture) during the last decades of 
       Franco's regime
