In October 2008 I screened Museum Futures at Intermediae in Madrid.
Intermediæ is an initiative of the Arts Department of Madrid City Council. It opened in 2007 and is located in the Matadero (former abattoir) in the Legazpi district of the city. It provides Madrid with an arena for contemporary creative arts in which the City Council acts as a catalyst for creativity.
Intermediæ’s defining characteristic and purpose isprocess, to make and remake relationships between various publics, their city council and creativity.
Intermediæ aspires to extend its processes and practices to other institutions - both public and private, at a local, national and international scale.
As you can imagine, there was a good correspondence to what Intermediæ aspires to, and many of the themes in the film; Museum Futures.
Intermediæ is also committed to build shared resources for all its contributors, participants and publics. We decide to developing a project together over the coming months, and you can see how it developed as Procesos de archivo /Archivalprocess.
