Juan Genoves’ artistic career is deeply linked to the movements opposing Franco’s regime in Spain: he has always believed that art should be committed to social issues, as well as being alluring emotionally and even physically. His style features plain colours and cinematic-like compositions, with dynamic uses of lines in perspective. His paintings convey intense anxiety and disorientation, absurdity and human fragility as he explores political and social issues, the contradiction between the individual and the crowd and, as the title of the book suggests, the broad concept of resistance. Juan Genoves (Valencia, 1930) is best known for his 1976 painting El abrazo (The Embrace), reproduced for an Amnesty International poster in the Spanish transition to democracy, which would later become the memorial to the lawyers killed in the 1977 Atocha massacre. 30 images
