The program of public art MADRID ABIERTO initiates its sixth edition with the international seminar Urban Buddy Scheme in La Casa Encendida of Madrid. This edition of Madrid Abierto intends to investigate the possibilities of a work of social and cultural collaboration politically concerned, as well as to analyze the way in witch this work can function as a driving force for change in the city. Also, it intends to activate processes witch shall integrate the new fields of knowledge within the already existing ones. Urban Buddy Scheme is organized around the presentation of the selected artists and other artists and architects involved in the already existing activities of the city.

Madrid is growing in an unprecedented pace. Multi disciplinary initiatives are engaged in processes that formulate new possible relationships with the city and its inhabitants, this while revealing complex layers of information. Activities that aim to envision possible futures, beyond the current construction crisis, continue with impressive strength.

This edition of Madrid Abierto sets out to investigate the potentials of collaborative socio-cultural and politically engaged work and how such work may perform as catalysts for change in the city. We will also try to activate processes that integrate new bodies of knowledge into the already existing.

Urban Buddy Scheme is built around the presentations by artists and architects involved in some of the existing activities carried out in the city. The seminar aims to merge such practices and concerns with those of the invited participants for Madrid Abierto 2009-10. As much as Urban Buddy Scheme is envisioned as an opportunity to exchange information, it is also meant to serve as a social hub of activities and networks.
