Today me given for think what Spanish contemporary artists are those who really are doing history and leaving trace in the contemporary art.
Task not easy at all, especially if we think that this following list only corresponds to the subjective taste of a person, but that I will try to base with the production of every artist. Also there is another quandary: what is the contemporary art?
Since small ask since the plastic eclectisismo and the limits of the contemporary art are already not those of other moments of the art, exactly perhaps this freedom of the contemporary art is his biggest treasure and his biggest perdition, because on behalf of the contemporary art sometimes we see every thing, which for God! Interesting the video that he accompanies is ready and tries to explain also the situation of the contemporary art.

Photographer, teacher, writer, critic, and artist, obtains the National Award of Photo in the year 1998, but his work goes beyond the photo, linking this one to the images treatment by means of computer hardware, raising an interactive visual work to the spectator.
Without doubts the best photographer of Spain of the moment, Joan Fontcuberta (Barcelona, 1955) has developed in addition to the photographic art, a plural activity like teaching, theoretical, critical, publishing and enclosed historian. He studied Information sciences in the Autonomous University of Barcelona, due to his interest in the world of the communication of masses.
His first exhibition realized it in 1974 in the Room Aixelá of Barcelona. His first works were questioning by means of the photomontage and other skills of manipulation the veracity conditionally accepted in the photographic image. Towards ends of the 70, his work evolves towards more reflective and conceptual positions, analyzing topics of representation, knowledge, memory and ambiguity between others.
