Berzosa book

Alberto Berzosa’s book ‘Cine y sexopolitica’ is out now from Brumaria. The beautifully illustrated book is based on the research that CRUSEV’s Berzosa carried out during the run of the project: it is simultaneously essay, archive, and exhibition catalogue.

The book explores a culture of vital political, sexual and audiovisual experimentation that was active in several cities in Spain during the period of transitional change experienced in the 1970s and 1980s: it looks in detail at the practice of a group of directors, artists and actors. In the volume this history is recovered, aesthetic strategies are revealed, and the utopian commitment to political transformation through sexual liberation that was imagined possible in those years is explored in detail.
