Tejiendo Móstoles

Over the years, Tejiendo Móstoles (Weaving Móstoles), a name that defines their intention of structuring the city’s social fabric, has become an emblem of the museum. To date, the group has made an awning for the roof garden, thanks to which the vegetables grown were able to survive the rigours of summer in Madrid, and created the first public Hammock Area – Hamacódromo – in Europe, a pine forest filled with hammocks designed to defend housewives’ right to laziness, the one thing they had never been able to have.

Work on this textile began in 2020, at the height of the pandemic. In their own technique and according to their possibilities, each participant crocheted one square. For CA2M, the project represents the kind of low institutionalism that enables different communities to move into the museum and, in turn, enables the institution to be simply a space that supports their ways of working. Thanks to the crochet makers, we never stop learning!
