The VOIDS & CONDENSERS workshop [Madrid] alludes to a semantic paradox: vacuum strategy versus condenser accumulation. The workshop addresses the public space as a place of negotiation, spontaneous social representations, tribunes for demonstrations and demands, scenarios that can be reprogrammed according to circumstances, temporary supports for citizens movements, urban showcases of contradictory society, accumulators of layers of collective memory. Focus on Madrid: a town of remote origins. Its heyday was in 1561, when Philip II moved his court from the nearby city of Toledo to the Real Alcázar in Madrid. Spain’s capital has grown, absorbed and transformed with historical developments and events.
