LA TABACALERA Self-managed Social Centre.

This afternoon was specially revealing for me, considering I’ve been in a social centre in Madrid, which most attractive feature to me is  that it’s self-managed.

It currently occupies a third of a huge abandoned building of around 300.000 sq. ft. There is no reception desk, no information point, there are no plans, no guides. You are on your own, to discover every corner, every work of art waiting to be seen.

I cannot assert to which extent it is actually “self-managed”, but I will find out.

It could well be the hub for a couple of interesting social-political projects.

Below, there are some images.
