Yesterday I took a few pics while visiting this big art center based in Madrid: El Matadero.
It was sunny and hot and dry as always it is here in Madrid during the summer time. The place is so big that looked like empty but still, very interesting.
This art center has different buildings recently renovated – actually, there are more of them waiting to be restored. We visited one of the Photoespaña exhibition held there: “Nuestro trabajo nunca acaba”, and the Cineteca, an interesting little – and cool! – displaying post-war documents about spanish cinema.
An interesting afternoon!
The Matadero, as its name suggests, was a slaughterhouse, yes, just like that! It was built between 1911 and 1925 and was functioning till 1996. It Includes 48 buildings. “It was set up to help reflect on the contemporary sociocultural environment and support processes to build the culture of today and tomorrow”. More info here 🙂
