Ana Beatriz Nestlehner Cardoso de Almeida
MOVA's Founder , Architect and Urban Planner
Ana Beatriz understands art as a process of a need of questioning and expression. For her it is important to question what we saw and hear, being the critical thinking and curiosity about the events around us, the first step to freedom. In this sense understands the MOVA as a WAY for participants to express themselves, to try different sensations out of their routine and eventually to expand their critical potential through the art.

Architecture and Urbanism student at FAUUSP
Andrea had known the MOVA, while she was cutting Mandalas. She thinks that art in the architecture and the action of architects are in the perception of the possibilities in some different scales. She believes that the production of MOVA is in the scale of the instant collaboration, resulting in the meeting of friends and strange peoples, who are available in the intervention place, futhermore its permanence is in the human scale perception at the street viewpoint, from the going and coming, promoting the new human contacts.
She suspects that art lives in the utopia of the action in the human collaborative scale, in front of the heavy need to survive in the metropole of São Paulo.
