Real Madrid is an artist practice started 2015 in Geneva; they question coping strategies around diseases and stigmas. An interest in miscommunication led to a name that makes it problematic to spread and track images of their work on any search engine. Re-appropriating the name from the highly lucrative football franchise, RM brands itself as a marketable counterfeit commodity. RM work has been exhibited in private and public institutions like Migros Museum (Zurich), Centre d’Art Contemporaine (Genéve), GAK (Bremen), Auto Italia South East (London), Centre Culturelle Suisse (Paris). They won the Swiss Art Award 2018 and are nominated for the forthcoming edition 2021, they were residents fellows at the Istituto Svizzero in Rome in 2019/20.
