In this selection of works from its Collection, the Museo Reina Sofía takes a close look at art produced in Spain and abroad during the 1980s and 1990s. Minimal Resistance centres on the search by artists for new spaces of resistance in a globalised world, and examines a series of dualities that polarized the period dealt with, from the global economic crisis to financial capitalism, from the potential of the collective to the recuperation of the myth of the artist, from interventions reclaiming public spaces to discourses revolving around memory and the body, from a form of theatricality that emphasizes staging and architecture, to performative languages and relational models, and from the rehabilitation of traditional genres to the appropriation of images from mass media and mass culture.
