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‘ Movida is represented as a heat map to identify clusters of activity, whereas the Movida of La Luna de Madrid is rendered as specific locations. For the most part, El País limits the Movida to a smattering of points in Malasaña, Chueca, and Lavapiés–central neighborhoods–whereas La Luna de Madrid offers a more extensive cartography (and socioeconomics) of the period.
