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.
Our current issue focuses on Character. The issue is dedicated to the memory of architect, author, and educator
Stanley Tigerman (1930-2019) and features his 1983 Career Collage as the cover (pictured above).
In 2019, MAS Context is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
