Madrid City Council Pulls Plug on Medialab Prado

After ousting its longstanding director Marcos García in January, Madrid City Council announces the end of Medialab Prado (MLP) in its current form. The pioneering cultural space and citizen lab will lose its iconic home of 20 years—a central building with a signature media facade, adjacent to major museums—and move to the Matadero facilities to coexist with other civic initiatives. The extended MLP community is pushing back: organized as [We Are The Lab], they call for the project’s continuation in a manifesto that you can sign here.
