Abstract

In May 1931, the first issue of the long–awaited Spanish modernity platform appeared: A.C. Actividad Contemporánea. Although the publication of the magazine had become an indispensable requirement for the existence of the GATEPAC, its manufacturing process turned out to be very long and fraught with difficulties.
