With works dating from the 1960s to our present day, the show aims to explore historically how most contemporary artists and works place emphasis in matters relating to occultation, seeming senselessness, literary resources or double meaning between form and content, among others, at the moment of launching an idea, a concept or a message for the viewer to understand, read or encode — even fully aware of its own difficulties — while in others the emphasis is placed in the poetics of senselessness or the no understanding.
