Más Arte Más Acción encourages critical thinking through exchanges and collaborations with artists, writers and other professionals from around the world. The Chocó Base, where many of these reflections take place, was created by Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout. It offers visitors an opportunity to explore contemporary global challenges that relate to the natural world and humanity – within one of the world’s most bio-diverse regions. Over the past five years visitors have considered biodiversity, food production, water, consumption and technology.
From 2012 – 2016 MaMa explored utopia to mark the 500th anniversary of Thomas More’s book Utopia. Many of the results from this Nuevatopias programme can be found in MaMa’s books “Nowhere”, “Better Than” and “This Place”.
