The Museum of Contemporary Cuts (MoCC) is a new international museum that focuses on the impact that the current economic crisis has on the arts, artists and the creative industries. MoCC is a mobile museum, an art project in itself, a curatorial vagary and a documentation site of contemporary cuts to art organizations that are often left undocumented and un-collected. It is also a site that commissions new artworks and promotes initiatives on art and economics as well as a research aggregator of commentaries and debates on the arts in a time of crisis. MoCC’s mission statement resumes and represents the role to which contemporary arts and artists are relegated.
