(ENG) The paintings and photographs of La Sección Áurea date back to 1990 and all kinds of artists collaborated in their production. (We only name here those presenton the exhibition "Máquinas de trovar", which took place at the gallery form May to July 2017). There are anonymous, collective, heteronymous artists with marked stylistic features and there’s even a girl who today has become a famous composer. The nature of these works is difficult to resolve. They were given some general rules and on these given rules artists exercised their authorship. This imprint was of course dependent on the invitation but it was not exactly collaborative in nature, it was not cooperative, nor did Pedro G. Romero even know some of his guests personally. Rather, it was the conviction that all work depends both on the field in which it is exercised and on the biographical accidents of the personality. In any case there are no conclusions or major judgments on the dissolution of the author, his death or resurrection. The idea was to raise a question, to put quotation marks to the great stylistic gestures. The presentation of these works was always problematic, bitter debates with Hernández Pijuan or Juan Ariño marked their installation and public presentation. These works have been stored for a long time and some pieces show, in fact, the wounds of time. But it seems that some of those questions are still relevant today.
