Photography and Modern Architecture in Spain, 1925-1965. Iñaki Bergera (ed.)




photographers, architecture, modernity, aesthetics, theory


Under the same title as the research project it stems from, this book is intended as the catalogue for the exhibition held at the ICO Museum (Madrid) between June and September 2014. The project, under the direction of Iñaki Bergera, brought together several researchers and guest authors in order to analyse, document and disseminate the role of photography in the construction of modernity in Spain. Both the exhibition and the catalogue are vehicles for the initial presentation of the research carried out.
