María Acha-Kutscher

Birth placeLima, Peru Birth date1968

Visual artist María María Acha-Kutscher also co-directs with Tomás Ruiz-Rivas the experimental art project Antimuseo. Lives in Madrid and works globally. The main focus of Acha-Kutscher’s work is the woman. Her story, the struggles for emancipation and equality, and the cultural construction of femininity. María María organizes her work in long-term projects, and for each one develops a unique language and methodology. Each of her works is an artistic product in itself, but they are also instruments of social change that contribute to political transformation, especially for women. She defines herself as a feminist artist, seeing art as a powerful political tool.

 

She has exhibited individually in cities such as Lima, Haifa, Mexico City or Sarajevo. Recently, Womankind project was exhibited at La Virreina Centro de la Imagen in Barcelona. She also received the Prize for Contemporary Art Creation by the Madrid City Council in 2017.
