Mat(Tijs) Visser (f. 1958) er chef kurator for Socle du Monde biennalen. Han studerede arkitektur i Delft og har siden da arbejdet med udvikling af performances og kunstudstillinger og har desuden  grundlagt The Troubleyn Theatre Company i Antwerpen. Han var udstillingschef hos Museum Kunstpalast i otte år, har kurateret historiske udstillinger og er bedst kendt for sin Artempe udstilling i Palazzo Fortuny i Venedig. Han er grundlægger of tidligere direktør for den internationale ZERO Foundation. Med Vissers hjælp og vision var Socle du Monde biennalen i 2017 større end nogensinde og med en helt ny atmosfære, og i 2021 er biennalen endnu større med ønske om til fremtidige biennale at være endnu større.

Welcome Back My Friends to the Show that Never Ends. WELCOME! When many museums have become impregnable bastions, with hermetic exhibitions, disconnected from reality a few want to welcome you. So, we say WELCOME BACK! We all lived through a long silent pause, with art practically driven out of our daily lives, and with most of our attention focused on mere survival. Now it is time to get back together again and think about the past, present and building the future. WELCOME BACK MY FRIENDS! Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between people. Let’s try to find that emotional link of affection between a work of art and the beholder that threads us together in a lasting friendship. WELCOME BACK MY FRIENDS TO THE SHOW sets the stage for a festival of form and experience; a nexus where real life and artistic life merge together, and where old and new friends meet. While life is so fragile and finite, art is about resistance; a timeless force that sets us on a course of an endless journey. WELCOME BACK MY FRIENDS TO THE SHOW THAT NEVER ENDS!
