In this publication, the author Antonio Ortega traces the genealogy of DIY art practices from the 1960s until the present. To do so, he calls upon a personal selection of artists who gave a new turn to their work process allowing them to gain authority over the narrative.
To complement his analysis, Antonio Ortega chose to be interpellated by art historian Pilar Bonet. He also turned to social researcher Rubén Martínez Moreno and artist Quim Packard-who reflect on the contextual framework of self-organization-as well as painter Pere Llobera, who contributed his illustrations.
