Ramiro Chaves &
MAOF (Materiales y Oficios)

MAOF has been in operation since mid-2014, housing a collection center for timber logs, sawmill, wood workshop, hen-composter, nursery garden, artists’ workshop, exhibition space, and living space for resident artists. MAOF was involved in several re-construction projects and other initiatives through the critical use of materials (wood, timber, tools, etc.) coming from different contexts. MAOF was founded by Diego de la Cruz Gaitán, who co-directed it along with Gabriel Maldonado Andreu and Mario Gracia Otero, and they’ve worked with a wide range of collaborators. Artist Ramiro Chaves developed a long term experimental documentary process that concluded in the edition and publication of the collaborative book MAOF in 2018.
