In chapter 3, Frank discusses three important Nueva Figuración exhibitions. In one of these, a drawing show, the group focused on the governmental crisis that was then erupting. The military had divided into two factions in a disagreement over how to manage the Peronist movement: these factions, the Azules and Colorados, actually battled in the streets of Buenos Aires. Ernesto Deira created an important work based on Julio Cortázar’s 1960 novel Los premios (The Winners), an allegory of political chaos in Argentina of the time. Jorge de la Vega began a series of works depicting monsters of various kinds, one of them a critical commentary on developmentalism—the dominant belief set of the country's leaders. Luis Felipe Noé created Introduction to Hope, an important work that engaged many then-current issues, including Peronism, elections, and political passion.
