As a member of Los Disidentes, Otero contributed to the group’s inaugural manifesto written in 1950. The artists outright rejected what they perceived to be an antiquated vision of artistic production and instead proposed to look to a new future:

“We are against that which to us seems retrogressive or stationary, against that which has a false function […] ‘NO’ to the false Salons of Official Art. ‘NO’ to that anachronistic archive of anachronism called the Museum of Fine Arts. ‘NO’ to the School of Plastic Arts and its promotion of false Impressionists. ‘NO’ to those national and foreign artmongers’ exhibitions that number in the hundreds each year at the Museum.”
