MAMA is a platform for visual culture in Rotterdam, focussing on talent development through (often new) productions and presentations at the interface of art and popular culture. MAMA realises exhibitions, books, magazines, performances, master classes and events in its showroom, online, on location, both locally and internationally.

MAMA’s programme is rooted in youth and popular culture and takes place in areas where broader cultural developments – social, technological, economic – become visible within contemporary art practice. New tendencies often emerge outside of the institutional context – online and offline, the private sphere and public domain. This is where collective activity thrives and where culture and creativity can manifest beyond institutional consent. MAMA closely follows the developments of a young generation of artists, striving to achieve this through invitation, support, and development. MAMA works together with a large and diverse group of emerging professionals: MAMA’s Artistic New Talents. They provide feedback, solicited and unsolicited, on our content and the direction of the programme and the organisation. Many have become staff members or participated in our exhibitions and projects. Our supporters – both organisation and audience – are actively engaged, ambitious, and articulate. MAMA emphasises collectivity and welcomes diverse voices in the programme.
