The documentary exhibition What are we doing here? Alternative spaces in Madrid at the turn of the century, curated by the students of the Master of Art History and Visual Culture that is taught at the Centro de Estudios of the Reina Sofía Museum, proposes a review of the documents that are part of the archives of the Spaces Garage Pemasa and Off Limits, as well as the archive of the collective Fast Food. These initiatives s tried to promote new artistic and cultural proposals outside of institutionality. At the same time, they soaked up the problem affecting the places where they developed their activity and weaved bonds of community and affection with their nearest social environment. The acquisition of these documentary ensembles by the Reina Sofía Museum is part of a broader project: the Network of Archives of Independent Practices in Madrid since the 1980s, a acquis that aims to preserve the documentary memory of these practices of an independent nature or alternative institutionality, as well as to promote lines of research on artistic and social activism within a broader framework of knowledge. The exhibition's own curatorial team takes a guided tour of the exhibition hall, in order to activate the materials exposed, update the meaning of the documents, propose multiple narratives and interpretations of them, and try to offer an answer not only to the question that gives title to the exhibition, but also to all the questions, tensions and dilemmas that arose during the research project. Educational program developed with the sponsorship of Aforo: 15 people, distributed in 3 groups of 5 people. Passes at: 5:30 p.m., 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
