Restless (E)motion is dedicated to a selection of Spanish artists reflecting on the emotional uneasiness of the human being. According to 20th Century philosopher Ortega y Gasset, each generation represents certain vital sensitiveness, which confronts and develops former ideologies at the same time. An evolution configured under a structural form in which the human mass is receptive and limited to accept or oppose the proposals made by individuals with "avant-garde hearts and alert souls, condemned not to ever be fully understood".
This selection tries to upbring diverse matters of interests for a group of talented Spanish artists, mixing those specifically local, but with universal trascendence, with those universal in nature but that are perceived from the point of view of a generation of artists intrinsically attached to the Spanish culture.
