MBASSY Unlimited presents:






Marianna Maruyama 

– three movements –

in conversation with artist Margret Wibmer

hosted by GEMAK

supported by the Austrian Embassy The Hague 







“What is movement without mobility? Resistance faced and the false notion of having choices. We, that is, the entire planet, live with nuclear energy, nuclear weapons, radiation uncontained which threatens all forms of life. Decisions made prior to our births or with-out our consent or even with our consent now force us to take positions and to stand somewhere – are we for or against? Do we remain, abstain, or evacuate? Affirm, reject, revolt?” 


Marianna Maruyama (1980, California) is an artist based in the Netherlands, currently pursuing an MFA from the Dutch Art Institute. Through writing, sound recording, drawing and play, she looks for ways that movement facilitates an understanding of position. She will perform a multilayered collaborative text, relating to the great Tohoku Earthquake of 2011.  


This is the second edition in a series of events presenting emerging European and international artists, living and working in The Netherlands. Our mission is to communicate and to ignite a new dialogue from the artist’s perspective.


Mbassy Unlimited is an independent alliance for contemporary art & culture seeking to create new equity for the arts in an increasingly challenging time. It is founded by Margret Wibmer, an international artist and lecturer.
