Performer – Amsterdam, Netherlands
Participant International Forum 2019

Alice Pons is the co-founder of MOHA, an Amsterdam-based artist collective who create performances, present workshops, devise publications, and propose alternative curatorial models. Operating outside conventional art institutions, they work in public spaces and with specific communities, aiming to shatter personal bubbles and connecting with the day-to-day realities of people they might never otherwise encounter. Through their projects, they create connections between the art field and other disciplines, believing that art needs to make these connections in order to take a more active role in shaping the way society functions, the way cities are build, and the way we collectively dream about our future.

MOHA: “Our position in relation to the contexts we are working in is always in question. Are we part of the building's maintenance team? Are we a bad entertainment act? Are we the artists? As we strive to understand the different structures that surround us, we become the structures themselves.”
