TELE / EXPRESS, CULTURE AND LITERARY CRITICISM
Rustic 13 x 21 cm
Author: Alberto Cabello Hernández
The first issue of Tele/Express hit the streets on the afternoon of September 16, 1964 with the challenge of being the first private newspaper to be published in Catalonia after the Spanish Civil War. In its sixteen years of existence, it became the newspaper of Barcelona's progress, being its central stage - owned by the Count of Godó and directed by Manuel Ibáñez Escofet - the most fruitful in the literary and cultural order. It is then when, for example, the supplement “Tele/Express Literario” was created, which became a benchmark for the most critical sector of society. The newspaper, published in the evening and covered in Barcelona, fostered dialogue between the different collective memories and alternatives to the official Regime. The connections between prewar and postwar Spain; between the Spain of exile and the interior; between native and foreign literature, especially German, English, and Spanish-American; or between the Franco regime and the alternative culture, a minority of the so-called peripheral languages, strange literatures and the narrative of women ... they kept culture alive, in a not conducive context, as a tool to develop the critical judgment of the individual and the society.
