La Quinta del Sordo is a creative coworking space that is located in the La Latina neighborhood of Madrid, a place to work in community, to connect, to innovate, to learn and discover art and culture from within the industries themselves cultural and creative.

La Quinta del Sordo

But it is much more than a co-working space, it is designed to create and inspire, it is a creative community that grows and transforms itself to transform what surrounds it, whose mission is to generate a place for ideas and start-up of projects. La Quinta del Sordo, a space with more than 1000m2 conceived as a factory of collective creation dedicated to cultural innovation through training programs, networking and cultural events, is based on a model of collaboration and transmission between creators, professionals (today more than 70 professionals from different areas coexist in this space), and the public itself, with the commitment to creative companies and the professionalization of the sector, working with this philosophy to collectively grow and innovate in the cultural arts sector.

Closeness and community are the basis for transformation, and this is the place to shape the new ideas of each project. Plastic Artists, Filmmakers, Photographers, Playwrights, Architects, Musicians, Artisans, Designers, Innovation Projects, Marketing or Graphic Designers and O.N.G., are what give it life. This declaration of intentions is what has connected La Quinta del Sordo with the parallel program of the 13th edition of Art Madrid, dedicated to #Art&Education in which they are Collaborating Space (we will see you there throughout February with different activities) and also they present TANDEM.


WHAT IS TANDEM? TANDEM is an intensive professionalization and project start-up course that unites artists and cultural managers to learn while they launch their artistic-cultural projects as a team. TANDEM is committed to innovation in cultural formats through the union of artists, managers and projects. It offers new tools for the creation, documentation, communication and marketing of creative projects, to grow collectively within the sector of cultural and creative industries.

The course is aimed at professionals, artists, cultural managers, students or art lovers, who want to develop their own projects working as a team and learning from within how the current artistic community works (if you do not have a project do not worry you will end up with one without doubt!).

The TANDEM course is an intensive course with theoretical-practical classes, lectures, project tutoring, debates, visits and meetings lasting 7 days. The objective: obtain the most current tools to develop projects in the field of culture and art.

If you are interested in TANDEM or want to meet La Quinta del Sordo, we will see you on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 1, at 7:30 p.m. with #Art&Education #ArtMadrid18.

In the year 2020 in the heart of Barcelona a wandering gallery was born, the same one that in February 2021 would debut at Art Madrid with an exhibition proposal focused on contemporary portraits; with this subject matter it would manage to create a powerful dialogue between artwork and audience and make the seal Inéditad remain in the history of the event that contained it.

Since that first time and until today, the wandering gallery has managed to build projects on otherness, has repositioned in the spotlight the discourses on the LGTBIQ+ collective, has consolidated a group of artists who share its principles of resilience and empathy and the best thing is that it continues to bet from the professionalism and commitment to give voice to the difference.

Inéditad Gallery, thanks to its founder Luis López, its collaborators and the infinite possibilities manifested in the works of the artists it represents, is a gallery that has demonstrated its capacity and courage to stimulate the sensibility of the public through art and seduce a generation that moves between the glass window and the analogical story. Inéditad is a nomadic gallery that has gathered around it a community of artists and has moved the context with exhibition projects that think about LGTBIQ+ art without prejudices.

Pride and Prejudice was inaugurated. An exhibition that brings together the works of sixteen artists: Abel Carrillo, Alex Domènech, Carlos Enfedaque, Silvia Flechoso, Jamalajama, Daniel Jaén, Claudio Petit-Laurent, Jean Carlos Puerto, Fernando Romero, Pablo Rodríguez, Pepa Salas Vilar, Jack Smith, Pablo Sola, Bran Sólo, Elia Tomás and Utürüo. Painting, illustration, photography and digital art are the manifestations that bring into dialogue around fifty neatly threaded pieces, in a discursive line that discusses such a latent phenomenon as discrimination. To achieve this, the artists invited to the exhibition question themselves whether: Does discrimination exist within the LGTBIQ+ collective?

With approaches on and from the body, the proposal invites to celebrate diversity, proposes to question and self-question the prejudices and attitudes of society against the collective. Pride and Prejudice is a space for dialogue about the constructs imposed on us by society. It is also an oasis in which to deconstruct with tolerance and respect the subjectivities that sometimes prevent us from approaching the production of the participating artists, simply because "the beautiful" does not fit in an androgynous body. The subjugation of stereotypes are pressed with determination to find the beauty of diversity in other palpable facets of reality.

Throughout these three years Inéditad has stimulated the vindictive projection towards bad practices, has questioned estates around the LGTBIQ+ body and the most admirable thing, is that these capacities have resurfaced around the dialogue and the visual narrative of the stories that are told from the visual: Artworks that are people, art that is, per se, humanity. Overcome impositions and accept what is different in order to continue fighting against homophobia, biphobia, lesbophobia or transphobia and defend the equal rights that all the acronyms of the collective deserve in our community.

That's Pride and Prejudice: One creature, the happiest in the world. And maybe other projects and other people have said it - or felt it - before, but none so fairly.
