RMS, El Espacio is a nonprofit space that aims to become a working place devoted to contemporary creation: an environment for debate, in which different ways of thinking and doing can be outlined, and discourses in the process of being formulated can be made; a laboratory of projects in which a system of trial and error is prioritized; a meeting point for the exchange of experiences; a rehearsal room in which proposals that explore emerging ideas and practices are presented; and an agency that produces new projects of a discursive nature or involve reflection on art itself or its displays.
An everyday space—seventy square meters with a kitchen—RMS is an invitation to a much more flexible, relaxed, and immediate approach to art projects and to those involved with them. It is a modest hub for encounters and discussions.
The space was founded in Madrid, in 2011, by RMS, La Asociación.
