MADRID ON THE MOVE “FEELING MODERN AND VISUALLY AWARE IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY”…

Vanesa Rodríguez-Galindo, miembro de POLENO, ha publicado recientemente un libro titulado: Madrid on the move. Feeling modern and visually aware in the nineteenth century por la prestigiosa editorial Manchester University Press. Sin duda, este estudio supone un hito para entender la cultura visual e impresa del Madrid de la segunda mitad del siglo XIX, espacio donde las élites nobiliarias tuvieron un papel decisivo.

Abstract

Madrid on the move illustrates print culture and the urban experience in nineteenth-century Spain. It provides a fresh account of modernity by looking beyond its canonical texts, artworks, and locations and explores what being modern meant to people in their daily lives. Rather than shifting the loci of modernity from Paris or London to Madrid, this book decentres the concept and explains the modern experience as part of a more fluid, global phenomenon. Meanings of the modern were not only dictated by linguistic authorities and urban technocrats; they were discussed, lived, and constructed on a daily basis. Cultural actors and audiences displayed an acute awareness of what being modern entailed and explored the links between the local and the global, two concepts and contexts that were being conceived and perceived as inseparable.
