PUNK. ITS TRACES IN CONTEMPORARY ART

Details

Catalogue of the exhibition PUNK. Its Traces in Contemporary Art, co-published by the Regional Ministry of Employment, Tourism and Culture, General Direction of Fine Arts, Books and Archives of the Regional Government of Madrid, and Álava Provincial Council. Punk emerged as an explosion at the end of the 1970s. Musicians, artists, designers, activists, and disheartened youths responded with rage to the social, cultural, and economic crisis of the age. Echoes of Dadaism and Situationism could be heard in this rage. But the noise of punk has continued. It is one of the cultural references of the twentieth century that has left the most traces. In art too. The reasons that lead to dissatisfaction, nonconformism, loss of faith in progress, and ferocious criticism of the icons of the economic and social system still prevail and are intrinsic to the practice of many artists. PUNK. Its traces in Contemporary Art records its impact on today’s artists: in noise and anti-design; in negation; as a violent, nihilistic, and anarchic reference; as the practice of do-it yourself; and as a way of accepting sexual diversity.
