THE MINISTRY OF CULTURE

19 Feb

ON LOCATION @ CONDE DUQUE. BUILT IN 1717 AS THE BARRACKS FOR THE ROYAL GUARD, AND IN 1976 IT WAS DECLARED BIEN DE INTERES CULTURAL. IT NOW HOUSES THE MUSEO DE ARTE CONTEMPORANEO DE MADRID, ALONG WITH FOUR LIBRARIES, AND CITY ARCHIVES.  IT GIVES A GLIMMER OF OUR FUTURE AFTER WARS, WHERE MASSIVE MILITARY COMPLEXES BECOME CENTERS FOR THE CREATIVE ARTS.
