POSTAL FREEK MADRID. A new Project by Unofficial Tourism group

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. Postal Freek Madrid is their new project:
