Dau Al Set
A group of avant-garde artists, philosophers, and poets active in Barcelona from 1948 to 1953. "Dau al Set," meaning "the seven-spotted dice," signifies the group's aim to strive beyond standard limits of expression. Founding members, including philosopher Arnau Puig and artist Antoni Tàpies, published a magazine of the same name that championed creative liberty and resistance to the dominant Fascist regime. Particularly inspired by Dada, Surrealism, and the work of Catalan artist Joan Miró, the Dau al Set circle served as a central force in promoting Catalan art that challenged academic and institutional norms.
