Art, Global Maoism and the Chinese Cultural Revolution

Noemi de Haro-García’s chapter describes the short-lived group of militant artists La Familia Lavapiés in order to explore the implications of being an artist within a Maoist organisation during the last years of the Francoist dictatorship and the early years of the monarchy. The collective collaborated, but also argued, with political leaders, mass organisations, political parties (especially the Communist Party), workers, students, neighbours and, of course, other artists. Sympathetic to akolasía (ἀκράτεια, the absence of coercion) and Trotskyism, the members of La Familia Lavapiés saw art and Maoism as tools with which they unsuccessfully tried to challenge and transform the cultural and political milieu in which they carried out their activities.
