Founded 2017
San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico


In October 2017, GIAP (Research Group in Art and Politics, founded in 2013 by Natalia Arcos & Alessandro Zagato) opened the doors of CASA GIAP, a space for collective events in the heart of San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, México. Casa Giap is a comfortable living and working space where we organize residencies, seminars, workshops, and other activities. Principally, we host research residencies for academics and artists who want to know Chiapas, and divelop creative projects in this vibrant region.
