Escrito está. Escritura experimental en España represented an exhaustive exploration of the field of experimental poetry in Spain from the final years of Franco’s dictatorship until the late 1970s. These decades witnessed the arrival of democracy at the political level, alongside an inexorable expansion of use of the information and communication technologies in the social sphere. Juan Hidalgo, Walter Marchetti and the Zaj group in general, José Luis Castillejo, José María Figueres, Rafael de Cózar, Julio Campal, Joan Brossa and Felipe Boso, in addition to Fernando Millán himself, were just a few of the many authors whose work, often obscure, could be seen in the exhibition. It was complemented with a program of films and a selection of reference literature in the Artium Library. All of the pieces, by some 300 authors of whom more than half were Spanish, were drawn from the Fondo Fernando Millán, an integral part of the Lafuente Archive since 2008.
