25 May - 6 September 2009.Translated as 'delinquent cinema', this exhibition focuses on the role played by juvenile delinquents in Spanish society, which peaked between 1978 and 1985, and reflected the urban, social, political and economic turbulence of that time. Their anti-social behaviour was also synonymous with the pandemic of heroin which scourged the country. Audiovisual montages, press cuttings, photographs, comic books, posters, even town-planning maps help to paint a grim but fascinating picture of the dilemma faced by Spanish youth in the '80's. The event is organized by Amanda and Mery Cuesta.
