Dorothée Selz and Antoni Miralda (with Joan Rabascall and Jaume Xifra), visual artists and performers

The multitude of art forms in the Sixties reflected a new interdisciplinary perspective that was starting to sow seeds of doubt over whether artists should belong to art or life.
Antoni Miralda, Joan Rabascall, Dorothée Selz and Jaume Xifra were among the many young artists who, feeling the need for change, attempted to explore new means of artistic expression by turning to fields of competence that had previously been excluded. For many, one of the consequences of this iconoclastic effervescence was people abandoning painting and making a lasting commitment to redefining art. Artists who were adept at happenings decided to escape the limiting framework of workshops and museums, which was isolating them from reality, to perform directly in the outside world and thus enjoy greater freedom of action. In this way, Dorothée Selz and the ‘Parisian Catalans’ became interested in performance art, which they strive to always accord a ceremonial context.
