MAS Context is a Chicago-based not-for-profit organization that addresses issues that affect the urban context. We do so through publications, various types of public events, and installations.
Each publication delivers a comprehensive view of a single topic through the active participation of people from different fields and different perspectives who, together, instigate the debate.
In 2019, MAS Context is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
