LA NEOMUDÉJAR MUSEUM
La Neomudéjar Museum is an independent museum in the center of Madrid city. We are focused in New Media Arts, Performance, Art Brut, Feminism and Queer Activism and New Ecology Movements.
We have created a singular space to create another way to relate with art, the artists and the comunity.
Now we are developing a network to create exchanges bettween Spain and The United States, so if you want receive our newsletters, please follow this link: NEWSLETTER
The building is an old warehouse from the frist railway station of Madrid from the late XIX century. The building was abandoned for many years until we hired the space in 2012 to create this Museum.

KARSTICA SPACE FOR CREATORS
Finally, two years ago we opened Kárstica Space for Creators. It´s an artist in residence space in a rural context. The space is in a little village named Cañada del Hoyo with only 300 inhabitants. It´s a two and a half hour drive from Madrid (bettwen Madrid and Valencia).
The building is the old railway station of the village from the early XX century.
Now its an artist residence for artist whose work involves ecology, new rural ways of live, reserch in nature and rural culture, ecofeminism, sustainability, etc...
Now we are in the curatorial program DiverseArt of LAartSHOW like guest museum. With the collaboration of Spanish Ministry of Culture
For this event we present the instalation DATA | ergo sum | REALOADED, an Interactive Art Installation that visualizes the capability of viewing machines using Artificial Intelligence by Ana Marcos (Spain)
With mirrors that attract the attention of visitors and based on the idea of a mirroring-portrait –relating to Art and Cinema, - we have designed an electronic and panoptic mirror for the first experimentation room where visitors are recorded by cameras that are not very visible on the set. A camera and recording-tracking software is today a technological device that can capture everything and understand the parts: objects and / or subjects that make up the image. The installation observes and records the behavior of visitors without them being aware that their simple presence in front of a mirror is providing an overwhelming amount of data; around 20,000 parameters are captured in just 20 seconds.
The system generates a new video with holographic effects and adds the data processed by the AI software. In essence, this artistic visualization presents a different kind of portrait: instead of being a static image, representing an instant or the romantic idea of offering the essence of an individual, it consists of a complex visual system, in which computing technology provides a different perspective. It is precisely those ways of seeing, of seeing ourselves, what DATA| ergo sum invites us to review in front of its AI system. The challenge begins with the part that most differentiates us from each other as humans: the face and then the body. This digital analysis that makes us readable for a machine opens new possibilities. We look into an unknown being, risking to recognize both our vulnerability and what is non-representable in human life..
Shortly, a “mirroring AI” system that is capable of parameterizing facial expressions and physical features to project information on a scene, reducing each individual to a sequence of information.
3D Interactivo studio
The 3dinteractivo collective is a group formed by artists and engineers that seeks, through research, a deeper understanding of the relationship between art-science-technology. The 3dinteractivo collective began its journey in 2010 and is currently co-directed by Ana Marcos and Alfonso Villanueva.
