El Ranchito is a cultural experiment launched by Matadero Madrid in collaboration with other artistic agents of the city. Built as a research project, it is conformed by three different areas: reflection, a residency programme and a public presentation.
El Ranchito works under the following parameters: collective production of meaning, transdisciplinary work, site-specific production, experimentation, community building, reflection from the context where one works, the up and coming, the importance of processes and with a focus on sustainable resources.
Through these axes and with a collective and open work process, El Ranchito aims to achieve the following objectives:
By achieving these objectives, El Ranchito wants to test the following hypothesis:
El Ranchito has a vocation of cultural project with a certain recurrence and inspired in formats like those of International Art Meetings, which require a long-term development and continuity. The first phase of El Ranchito aims for growth and transformation, taking place from March 2010 to September 2011 with its epicentre in Matadero Madrid, but hoping to spread to other areas of town.
Critical Practice is writing a proposal for a weekend in September/October 2011 of interactivity of cultural workers and Madrid's residents. For El Ranchito at the Matadero in Madrid, and in collaboration with Intermediae, we propose an Open Season – The Hunt.
