Matadero Madrid center for contemporary creation
Intermediae is a space in Matadero Madrid devoted to socially engaged artistic practices approached from the angle of research and cultural innovation. It was the programme chosen and designed for the launch of Matadero Madrid in 2007, and in its over ten years of history the space has become a key cultural venue in the city of Madrid and a national and international benchmark for contemporary culture that specialises in developing art and community projects.
Ecology, childhood, civic engagement in culture, cultural mediation and the right to the city, among other areas, have been the mainstays of a collectively-created programme that offers a window to the interests and feelings that unite the artistic community with an interest in the social that has been pursued both inside and outside Matadero Madrid´s walls.
Intermediae´s programme includes the design of projects aimed at residents of the area around Matadero, projects that aim to involve citizens in the artistic and cultural spheres, and hands-on work with the citys artistic and cultural fabric, always in a context of mutual exchange with the international scene associated with the relevant artistic practices.
Intermediaes annual programme includes individuals and groups, projects and proposals that connect creators, spaces of varying natures, networks and practices. Based on a philosophy of open culture, the annual programme is aimed at a broad spectrum of audiences and offers lectures, debates, presentations, seminars, exhibitions and workshops.
