WHAT IS IAMAIR?

Welcome on IAMAIR (IAI)! We are a specialized agency for cultural mediation and art performance based in the Netherlands. IAI’s focus is to discover new ways of engaging, behaving, and interacting within cultural institutions through immersive social experiences. Our approach brings together diverse groups of people, including artists, performers, cultural mediators, and audiences, in the co-creation of interactive performances mixing fiction, reality and serendipity.

All members of the IAMAIR project are AUDIENCES represented by the agency. Together, we create and perform different roles and actions, tailored to the institutions’ needs. Not only are our performances designed to generate interaction, they also create space for new narratives and new dynamics between audiences and institutions. By staging behaviors, meanings, and discourses that challenge traditional assumptions, we encourage critical reflection on our relationships with art, society, and institutions.

Everybody can take part in IAMAIR, regardless of background, education, age, appearance, or beliefs. To be represented as part of our AUDIENCES, all you need to do is create a profile. Participating is free and requires no prior experience or talent.

Our services are available to all institutions, museums, galleries, events, art fairs, etc. regardless of your budget size. A first meeting with our mediator is free. All you need to do is invite audiences and fill in the form, we will contact you asap.

Please note that this agency is an artistic research in progress. Improvements and changes are in development, and we are currently working on a new version of this website. The coming time will be focused on the creation of a pilot performance-tour, and we are looking for partners that would like to join in the project. Help us improve by sending questions, feedback, and comments to contact@iamair.nl. You can also ask questions directly in the FAQ space at the bottom of the page.
