1968, Imagined revolution

The power of the image, and a historical “fetishization” committed to generate a periodic memory and assign character to the years and decades, made to year 1968 the catharsis of a few restless and undoubtedly transformative years. But maybe not in the usual assumed way.

The facts, its media consumption and the nostalgic patina that have built myths and fictions deserve a critical review, especially in that year ’68 ‘, which it learned from many previous revolts and has had repercussions in others afterwards. This 50th anniversary is especially interesting because, over the last decade, enough issues have changed in geopolitics and tic, as to make the celebration very uncomfortable.
