WMMNA: Art In The Unplanned Edges Of The City
An exhibition in Madrid explores how people use and create the space outside the planned limits of cities.
For the first time in my life, I’m happy with Iberia services. They cancelled my flight from Gijón to Madrid and I was informed at the last minute that I was booked on a plane that departed before dawn. The new schedule meant that I’d have to wait eight hours for my connecting flight in Barajas airport (stunning architecture, crap-est over-priced food in the entire universe). I decided I would take the opportunity generously bestowed upon me by the dreadful airline and do something more interesting than spend hours in duty free shops. I left Barajas, took the metro to the center of Madrid, got a decent meal and visited an exhibition.
