Experimentation in writing, in all its various aspects, constitutes one of the relevant thematic elements that structure the Lafuente Archive. The specific case of developments in experimental writing in Spain from the mid-1960s to the early 1980s formed a conceptual axis for this exhibition. The display adopted a double perspective: the first part offered visitors a review of the leading figures and their most significant works, starting with Novel·la (1965) by Antoni Tàpies and Joan Brossa, and included pieces by Francisco Pino, Guillem Viladot, Ignacio Gómez de Liaño, Eduardo Scala, Elena Asins, Isidoro Valcárcel Medina, José Luis Castillejo, Felipe Boso and Fernando Millán, among others. The second part showed an abundant selection from the work of numerous authors, aimed at faithfully recreating the intensity of the period encompassed by the exhibition.
