Archivo Lafuente

The Lafuente Archive brings together a comprehensive documentary collection specializing in the history of 20th century art in Europe, Latin America and the United States, with particular emphasis on Spain. Experimentation in writing and transformations of the visible substance of language throughout the 20th century constitute the Archive’s main thematic line.

History Scope and Structure


Materials making up the Archive are organized into Collections. The Collections bring together documentation generated by the activity of one sole producer, whether a person, a collective, an organization or an institution. The content of Collections has diverse origins, but shares subject matter, central figures or other elements.



“Topics” are the conceptual threads that emerge through the Archive. The works and documentation from Collections are all linked on the basis of various of such themes, or topics.
