Our base locations
Our locations are unconventional, global, open, inspirational, universal and unique.
We seek out physical and mental breathing spaces, crossroads between people, culture and nature; between past, present and future.
Art is central in all our locations.
As the foundation is linked to artist Koen Vanmechelen, MOUTH's headquarters is situated at LABIOMISTA in Genk, an art, science and cultural park, designed and curated by Koen Vanmechelen. It hosts international symposia and events, and houses a permanent updated exhibition space which brings art together with science to illustrate its work and broaden public discourse on bio and cultural diversity.
The foundation has its base in the old Director's Villa, a protected cultural heritage site and former villa of the director of Zwartberg coal mines, and later Zwartberg Zoo.
