The Conde Duque Barracks is one of the buildings with the longest histories in the city of Madrid. Built in 1717, it has borne witness to the passage of time and been used for various purposes, from military lodging in its earliest days to hosting cultural events today. Un espacio para recordar will offer a chance to gain a deeper understanding of the history of this iconic construction via a participative, interactive experience.
Making the most of Madrid’s shady summer mornings, participants will take a tour through some of the building's courtyards. Each participant will be provided with wireless headphones that will allow them to listen to various audio recordings and soundscapes.
The idea is to create a setting in which visitors can start the day by renewing their energy, turning their attention to their bodies and carrying out simple movement and contemplation exercises. It’s a space in which to remember, observe, stop and find their own personal connection to the walls of Conde Duque.
Creation and interpretation: Germán de la Riva and Itsaso Iribarren
Artistic and technical assistance: Romina Casile
