Agustín Jais is an artist, curator, cultural manager, designer and professor. He is founder of Club Cultural Matienzo, an independent umbrella organization that runs a venue for the arts, culture and community life. His artistic practice is linked to this experience, taking form as context-based projects, developed mostly in collaboration, that experiment with institutional dynamics, community building and the collective re-learning of accessible technologies. He has presented projects at Hamiffal (Jerusalem), Centro Cultural Juan de Salazar (Asunción, Paraguay), Centro Cultural Parque España (Rosario, Argentina), and CETC-Teatro Colón, Espacio Telefónica and Centro Cultural San Martín (Buenos Aires, Argentina). He participated in residencies in New York, Ciudad de Mexico and Antwerp, and was speaker about collective initiatives at Beursschouwburg (Brussels), HaMiffal (Jerusalem), Fundación PROA and Fundación Lebensohn (Buenos Aires). In 2015 he made Soulseek/2016, his first collaboration with Denise Lara Margules.
