Co-opting the discredited format of the history textbook with its didactic tone, well-defined stages, and linear development, in Formalismo Puro David Bestué subverts the clichés of historiography, creating an unorthodox path whilst recovering forgotten ideas and breathing new life into familiar tropes.

It is a work that seeks to understand how the landscape is drawn around us. A fresh and very personal reading of our recent history, illuminated by photographs, collages, and gadgets created to explain the reasons of form. Formalismo Puro is an art project in its own right, created by a conceptual artist with a background in sculpture, enthralled by the notion of architecture as form.
