PUNTO Y RAYA is an international platform founded by MAD, a non-profit association in Barcelona. Its mission focuses on Education, international Coproduction, and Promotion of Abstract Art in Motion, aglutinating the most diverse creative community and consolidating mechanisms for the genre's expansion and sustainability.
In 2019 MAD was joined by PyR LAB POLAND and MUTUAL LOOP Künstler Kooperative in the coproduction of their activities and platforms, and since then, the team are based in Barcelona (ES), Wrocław (PL) and Vienna (AT).
Non-profit association founded in 2004 in Barcelona, Spain. For over fifteen years we've been working on cultural engineering through the development of projects involving Art, Science and Technology in over seven countries.
We are the founders and directors of PUNTO Y RAYA, amongst many other projects such as Caótica: Poetics of Complex Systems (commissioned by Fundación laCaixa), or the Digital Alphabetisation & Library Project for the Catalan Penitentiary Systems, commissioned by the Ministry of Justice – Rehabilitation Department.
PyRLAB POLAND is a non-profit association based in Wrocław, devoted to the education and promotion of Abstract Film and Media Art in that country and the Visegrád region. It develops projects that actively engage communities in art experimentation and the creative process; it establishes networks of artists, institutions, and educators that seek to promote the genre and sensitise broader audiences, and it implements strategies to resignify local cultural heritage through Abstract Art in Motion.
The association is part of the international Punto y Raya Platform, with partners in Spain and Austria. After coproducing the latest editions of Punto y Raya Festival (2018-2019) in Wrocław, PyRLAB is currently coproducing the 2021 editions of that world benchmark event: the third Punto y Raya Junior (Wrocław), and the ninth Punto y Raya Festival (Vienna).
