About Escuela de Altamira
Escuela de Altamira was a concept emerged from the imagination of the German artist Mathias Goeritz. This idea was supported by a web of artists, critics, poets and authorities of Santander. They created personal links of friendship and work that ended with two meetings about the “new art” that took place in Santillana del Mar during September of 1949 and September of 1950. This web, formed throughout letters, meetings, cards, exhibitions, posters, articles, conversations and edition of catalogues and books, left behind many works and documents that are the reason of the exhibition.
