MaMA is a platform for visual culture in Rotterdam. MAMA realizes presentations, exhibitions, books and magazines, performances, master classes and events, in its own showroom, online and on location, locally and internationally. MaMA’s program is rooted in youth and popular culture and takes place in those areas where broader cultural developments – of a social, societal, technological or economic nature – become visible within contemporary art practice.
This residency will be focus on topics such as co-creation with AI and virtual worldbuilding. Parallel to these collective moments, all participants will work on a project of their own.
