The group was actively involved in the Democratic Assembly of Girona Artists (ADAG), both as founder members and as part of the driving force behind the assembly. As independent artists, they also took part in initiatives arising out of the city’s most dynamic social movements.
Grup Praxis 75 was characterised by the use of procedures and techniques deriving from collage, photo collage and photomontage. The artists’ creative combinations of texts and images, often with an ironic or sarcastic note, turned into reflections on current events and/or instruments used in the political-ideological struggle of the time. Their productions encompassed elements from both highbrow art and popular culture, employed alternative means of dissemination from those of traditional art, and questioned to some extent the idea of the unique work of art.
