From 1978 and almost for a decade, Madrid was both the origin and the meeting point of an upheaval. La Movida was not an artistic movement. Nor it had what movements typically do: a political manifest or a declaration of intentions. No: La Movida was rather an eclosion. It was a juvenile convulsion, to begin with. The circumstances were propitious: the ostracism and shortsightedness that characterized the dictatorship were being left behind and a restless cohort of young people was diving into life. The images took by Miguel Trillo, Pablo Pérez-Mínguez, Ouka Leele and Alberto García-Alix are the photographic referents of what happened. They were not only witnesses; they were also participating actors. Within a few years, what began with the push, humility and precarity of self-taught youths, grew roots and mutated into modernity. It affected all the layers of Spanish society. La Movida had its own creation and a visual imaginary that merged with the heart of the times.
