Since the end of 2010 we have been working on the creation of a Public Art Archive to make it easier for those who are willing to look up any information or printed and digital material of any of
the 134 artistic projects that have been presented during Madrid Abierto’s several editions.
In addition to the said information, which is already accessible at www.madridabierto.com, the Archive contains unprecedented files and materials, as well as other data subject to restricted access due to intellectual property issues, such as sound and audiovisual works.
The main goal is to keep record of all the work processes originated and documented by the organization, artists, curators, remaining mediators and participants, as well as to establish other points of interaction and collaboration with entities interested in Public Art.
To this end, the Archive has been designed based on an structure that shows this creation and management process and whos structure is divided into different categories as follows:
- PREVIOUS: Material produced by the organization to start the open calls. It contains presentations, critical texts, material for the call, the list of sponsors, collaborators, thanks to and other materials.
- DEBATE SESSIONS: Programmes, videos, transcriptions and photographs.
- PROJECTS: Material presented by the artists: initial proposal and CV.
- INTERVENTIONS: Includes pre-production, production, location and programme-related projects.
- SOUND: It gives access to the sound works, reference card, descriptions and artists’ CV.
- AUDIOVISUAL: Audiovisual works, reference card, descriptions and artist’s CV.
- EDUCATIONAL PROJECT: Archives on theoretical principles, preproduction and production of this project carried out in MA’s last edition.
- MEDIA: It contains a media dossier which is divided into written press, radio, TV and Internet and provides with text, audio and video files, and physical material which makes direct reference to the artists. It also offers each edition’s videos and press releases.
- COMMON MATERIAL: Reports, brochures, memos or personal texts.
- ARTIST ARCHIVE: Other works, catalogues andartist information not related to MA.
- PUBLIC ART DOCUMENTS: Publications that are directly or indirectly related to MA.
In terms of physical space, the Madrid Abierto Archive has a reference and research, available to anyone wishing to visit it upon appointment (firstname.lastname@example.org), which is located in Matadero-Madrid (Plaza de Legazpi s/n) as a component of the Matadero´s Archive (www.mataderomadrid.org/ficha/651/archivo-matadero.html).

Unofficial Tourism group, which took part in 2009-10 Madrid Abierto edition with Unofficial tourism, and in 2011-12’s with Turismo raro, is launching a new call for participants: POSTAL FREEK MADRID, open until September 12th, which aims at publishing postcard-format photographs of the non-official Madrid, different to the standard image offered by the tourist industry . The postcards will be distributed throughout Madrid’s bars and stores.
Within MADRID ABIERTO's guidelines and under Unofficial Tourism's supervision - a project by artist Iñaki Larrimbe - different cultural agents created a series of unofficial tourist maps in 2009 and 2010 that were distributed thanks to an altered caravan that functioned as an alternative tourism office. Not long after, and as a result of work dynamics between those collaborating agents, they created a group to keep investigating, working on those same issues that Unofficial Tourism was discussing. Thus the Turismo Raro project is born as well as the Unofficial Tourism organization, made up of Guillermo de la Madrid, Mauro Entrialgo, Adriana Herreros, Iñaki Larrimbe, Ana Nieto, Santi Ochoa, Jimina Sabadú, Todo por la praxis, John Tones and Macu Vicente.
