Abstract

The twentieth century has taught us that avant-garde movements are cyclical and constitute a neces- sary solution of continuity with the present time so as to invent the future. A future that requires an indirect vision to avoid the petrifying gaze of the Gorgon. Time reveals whether and to what extent the avant-garde has constituted its vital and imaginative impetus towards the future, or if it has accepted to be an unconscious instrument of a return to the status quo ante.
