About this book


Pairing cultural analysis in urban contexts with interdisciplinary approaches to political culture, this book argues that recent cultural production in Spain grapples with the conditions and possibilities for social transformation in dialogue with the ongoing crisis, neoliberal governance, and political culture in Spain's democratic history.
