Iconoclasm and avant-garde—from the Spanish Civil War to Joseph Beuys’s Friedenshase

The iconoclasm that occurred during the Spanish Civil War (1936–39) went down in the history of the destruction of religious images as an extraordinary tragedy. Impoverished masses, anarchists, and socialists fought desperately against right-wing members of the Catholic Church. Since 1999, the Spanish artist Pedro G. Romero (*1964 in Aracena, Huelva) has been assembling traces of this period in an archive comprising more than one thousand historical images, texts, and sound recordings that he compares with the avant-garde and contemporary stances of artists and theorists, such as Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, Joseph Beuys, and Alexander Kluge. The Archivo F.X. is presented in constantly new forms with the aid of multimedia objects, complex exhibition choreographies, and thematic publications. The present volume is part of and testimony to the staging of the project at the Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart in 2012.
