The choreographer and producer Mario Lopes has been bringing artists from South America, primarily from Brazil, to Munich since 2008 in order to introduce them to audiences in Munich and have them develop subjects and projects with local artists. In 2013 and 2016 PLUSbrasil and platform PLUS were guests at Villa Waldberta. The new project PlusAfroT, for which eight artists are invited to Feldafing in the first quarter of 2019, can be seen simultaneously as a concept, program, and manifest. It deals with Afro-Brazilian culture and racism in the art and culture scene in Brazil and elsewhere.
