Trust has been one of essential points in every activity of the Espacio : it allowed the physical and theoretical construction of the space, the opening to the public without a predetermined programmation with some play rules that privileged the artist’s autonomy when conceiving, formalizing and presenting his proposal to the public.

Espacio Vacío is a laboratory where everybody works within a team. There has been as many teams as projects, with links always made with universities, students, artists, other existing spaces, external institutions, the neighbourhood..
