Aims and activities of the organisation
Founded in 2010, the MãoSimMão (MSM) Cultural Association is dedicated to contemporary art creation across various disciplines. MSM focuses on blending art with science, technology, and ecology, considering art and science as the core drivers of human knowledge. Under the artistic direction of Simão Costa, MSM collaborates with national and international artistic, academic, and scientific institutions. MSM’s focus revolves around interdisciplinary connections, bridging art forms like music, dance, theater, and visual arts with scientific and technological fields.
Over the past decade, MSM has brought together artists and thinkers to explore transdisciplinary artistic creation,
technology, and ecology, forming a collective focused on
research, action, and thought.
Artists involved in projects of MSM prioritize research and
experimentation, merging diverse disciplines and engaging with visual arts institutions while organizing their work
collaboratively across teams.
MSM's key areas of involvement include artistic creation and circulation, research for reflection, and artistic mediation facilitating access to creativity through innovative projects like “Tactile Listening” and workshops exploring creative processes.
Overall, MãoSimMão is committed to pushing the boundaries of contemporary art by integrating disciplines, fostering collaboration, and providing access to creative experiences through their diverse projects and activities.
