On Thuesday 21 June, at 19 hours, the Carmen Alborch auditorium of the Julio González Centre of the Valencian Institute of Modern Art (IVAM) will host the presentation of the book Joan Fuster: escritos de crítica cultural. This is the latest addition to the “Estètica & Crítica” collection, published by Publicacions of the Universitat de València (PUV).

Ester Alba, Vice-Principal for Culture and Society of Universitat de València; Anacleto Ferrer, director of the Estètica & Crítica of PUV, and the publishers of the book Salvador Ortells and F. Pérez Moragón will participate in the event.

This book is part of the different titles published in 2022 by the Universitat de València about Joan Fuster (Sueca, Valencia) to celebrate the centenary of his birth. The work analyses the articles on cultural criticism that he wrote during his his intense literary trajectory and through which he deployed his great sagacity and hypercritical thinking to give his opinion and reflect on issues related to literature, the plastic arts, music, philosophy and history, among others.

This book includes a representative selection of texts on this topic that, until now, were dispersed in different magazines and journals published between the end of the 40s and the beginning of the 80s. This publication is a result of an intellectual rescue operation conducted based on the documentary, periodical and bibliographic collections of the writer.
