Escrituras en libertad will be giving the public for the first time a comprehensive picture of Spanish and Latin American experimental poetry in the 20th Century. It is a historical narrative made up of the experiences of each one of the poets in the exhibition. Two main periods are presented, the early 20th Century and the 1960s, periods in which the major figures in experimental poetry came together. The poets featured include Ramón Gómez de la Serna, Vicente Huidobro, Joan Brossa, Juan Eduardo Cirlot, Carles Santos and Fátima Miranda.
