María María Acha-Kutscher

María María Acha-Kutscher. Lima-Perú, 1968. Visual artist. Co-directs with Tomás Ruiz-Rivas the experimental art project Antimuseo. Lives in Madrid and works globally.

The main focus of her work is woman. Her story, the struggles for emancipation and equality, and the cultural construction of femininity. Acha-Kutscher organizes her work in long-term projects, and for each one develops a unique language and methodology. She is possibly one of the few artists of her generation who defines themself as feminist, because of the political dimension of her work that plays a dual role: it is an artistic product in itself and also an instrument that covers a social need and also contributes to political transformations.
