About Ammodo

We initiate, develop and support projects in the visual arts, performing arts and sciences. Artists and scientists often see things before other people do. They identify social trends, extend boundaries and make revolutionary discoveries. By providing artists and scientists with the space and time to really immerse themselves in their work, and by helping to showcase that work, we seek to stimulate the development of the arts and sciences.

Case

We work together with reputable partners to initiate groundbreaking projects

Interviews

We want to be able to interpret developments in the arts and sciences. That is why we provide experts and innovators with a platform on which to present their visions.
