Exposició 'Vibracions prohibides'

Banned Vibrations: an exhibition on censorship in pop music

The exhibition can be seen at Born Centre de Cultura i Memòria until 28 August

In Spain in the 1960s, the political situation meant that pop music, which was becoming more and more popular among young people, was censored by the regime. A lot of lyrics never made it through the censor’s filter, and plenty of record covers, whether they were by local or by international groups, had to be altered if they were to make it to Spanish record shops. The exhibition Banned Vibrations, which will be at Born Centre de Cultura i Memòria until 28 August, presents a carefully researched selection of material that was censored during a period in which pop and rock music broke through in Spain to become a product of mass consumption.

In addition to the inherent interest of the material displayed, which includes, for example, original cover designs placed next to their censored versions, the exhibition allows the visitor to explore a period in Spanish history characterised by growing tensions between young people, who were anxious for change, and a political system that was hard set and repressive. Xavier Valiño and Héctor Fouce are the curators of Banned Vibrations.
