Comparing the Movida of El País and La Luna de Madrid

Recent update. The Madrid of the Movida as imagined in El País, Spain’s most widely-distributed newspaper, and La Luna de Madrid, a subcultural publication of the Movida active between 1982-1988.

El País‘s Movida is represented as a heat map to represent clusters of activity, whereas the Movida of La Luna de Madrid is rendered by location. As we can see, for the most part, El Pais limits the Movida to a handful of locations in Malasaña, Chueca and Lavapiés–center-city neighborhoods–whereas La Luna de Madrid offers a much more extensive cartography of the period.
