LET’S GET SOAKED BY A WAVE, AAHH! 2023
This year the project will continue experimenting with the mysterious; an activity inviting us to let ourselves be carried along and discover the space of the museum, paying particular attention to minimum detail, to little things and what normally goes unnoticed.
ARTIST AT WORK HERE
In this school year, we will continue to investigate together through the program Aquí trabaja un artista, a program in which artists develop a project in collaboration with the school community: teachers, students and families.
PROJECT FOR 0–6 YEARS
With the notebook full of new actions to put into practice we continue this course giving brilli-brilli to this research that we carry out between the area of education of the CA2M Museum together with the EnterArte collective.
UNDER-21 TEAM. BE PART OF THE MUSEUM
We are looking to create a group of young people from 16 to 21 years old interested in culture, art and community life. We are calling for more young people to join our team and get a strong start - sign up to discover the team!
MAKING A HOME
From the education department we like to think that we can all intervene in the construction of the world around us, so starting in January we will begin a collaborative process to imagine, design and make possible the construction of a shelter in a tree.
AN AMATEUR CHOIR 2023
An Amateur Choir is a creative project that welcomes any kind of voice which wishes to participate. Besides our own experimental sessions every second Thursday, we also have sessions with artists who work with the voice and listening.
COLLABORATION PROJECT WITH THE UAM
Together with their professors from the Department of Artistic, Plastic and Visual Education of the UAM and based on the experience of the group visits, we want to generate a working space between the university and the museum.

OPENING DOORS, CLOSING WOUNDS
We invited Costa Badia and Júlia Ayerbe to work with us on an educational project for the museum. We have started at the beginning, at the entrance doors.
Here you can listen to the disc-relation El triángulo made by Julián Mayorga as a result of what happened in the listening project between a school, a conservatory and an experimental choir of the museum in the 2019-2020-2021 academic year, which was extended by the pandemic and which brought thousands of unheard and spectacular sounds.
Verbena impar.¡Vaya lío, una mujer con dos maríos!
En esta sesión abierta de “Baile impar” queremos sacarte a bailar, arréglate de forma impar y bailemos, bailemos pegados, despacito, como una palmera, hasta que se seque el malecón y enamórate bailando como si fuera ésta la última vez.
Odd Dance is a workshop where you can practice in trio classic couple dances. It is aimed at all types of bodies that have had all kinds of experiences in dance floors, nightclubs and lounges.
TRAILS THROUGH THE CA2M MUSEUM
During these months, the exhibitions will be full of objects that we will be able to fly over, contemplate from above or from closer. We propose to wander among them, under their protection, let ourselves be touched and see what happens in this encounter.
LES SIN NOMBRE. SQUATING THE CRACK
Like a damp stain on the bathroom ceiling, this year Les Sin Nombre are back again. We are going to appropriate the museum waste to create termite nests. We are going to inhabit, occupy and squat the crack as a place to take refuge, that will allow us to make out way inside, to infect the walls through actions and conversations as sticky as our hands after eating a gigantic ice-cream.
POSITIONAL VISITS 2023
Welcome to Una vibración casi Imperceptible, a positioned visit. We invite you to enter a choreographed landscape that is created as we walk through it and that asks where does your body end and this landscape begin?
DOING TWO THINGS AT ONCE... WORKS A TREAT! A SELECT WORKSHOP WITH SAELIA APARICIO
In this workshop we will have the luxury of creating together with the artist, Saelia Aparicio, a unique service, an exclusive tableware designed by and for the girls and boys of the children's home in Mostoles, who gather every day around the table.
Aquí puedes escuchar el disco-relatoría El triángulo que hizo Julián Mayorga a raíz de lo que sucedió en el proyecto sobre escucha entre un colegio, un conservatorio y un coro experimental del museo en el curso 2019-2020-2021 que se alargó por la pandemia y que trajo miles de sonidos inauditos y espectaculares.
En este curso el equipo de educación del CA2M apostó por explorar formatos y enfoques, redirigiendo el foco hacia los volátiles procesos que suceden en el interior del aula en el marco de estos proyectos de artista.
Por segundo año, las residencias de artistas en colegios realizadas en el marco del proyecto Aquí trabaja un artista del CA2M, estuvieron acompañadas de una investigación evaluativa. Dando un paso más, desde el lugar reflexivo desde el que trabaja el departamento de educación, en esta edición el desafío fue el de indagar y explorar los diferentes enfoques y formatos que la investigación podía adoptar, y de qué modo estos podían aportar a la reflexión crítica sobre los procesos artísticos que se llevan a cabo en el marco escolar.
After several failed attempts, we can finally announce the presentation of We didn’t know what we were doing. Readings on education, a publication explaining some of the practices developed for and by CA2M’s education department. This publication compiles not just texts, but also a good number of group dialogues which bring into play a way of working that understands dialogue, constant research, experimentation and investigation as the basic pillars of educational work.
The book Arte actual. Lecturas para un espectador inquieto [which we could translate roughly as Art Today. Readings for an Edgy Viewer] is a compilation of essays by experts in art theory and practice on recurrent issues within art over recent decades, including: the viewer´s position vis-à-vis art today and its institutions; the construction of the modern subject and its crisis; gender issues; art in a global world; and the connections between aesthetics and politics.
The department’s first cinematographic production, Pyramids, is an audiovisual investigation on the project by the El Banquete collective within the Artist at Work programme. The documentary is a tool for encouraging spaces for reflection on artistic and educational practices as well as on other challenges facing collective work.
After a long slow time spent in conversations and encounters with amateur collectors connected with the museum, we are now launching a publication about some of the things they have been telling and showing us. We invite you to read, observe and get involved in these collections.
Agua de Borrajas and the artists-in-residence in the Acento programme have jointly produced a publication that rounded off the three-day event in which each one presented their own piece. The outcome are seven A1 posters making up a Manual of Instructions that that wishes to put the body of the actions to the test at home.
This publication is the outcome of the work undertaken in Artist at Work, CA2M’s art residency programme in schools. It is the result of the research and an account of a project that lasted almost three months and 20 sessions at the Beato Simón de Rojas school in Móstoles, with the guest artist Nuria Mora and the rest of the team at the museum’s education department.
