at 7 pm – Galerija Vžigalica

Goethe Institut

As part of the Play Instinct! project, prepared by the Goethe-Institut Ljubljana, the Vžigalica Gallery and MoTA point are hosting the exhibition NO PAIN NO GAME by the German artistic duo known as //////////fur////  (Volker Morawe / Tilman Reiff).

Since 2001 they have been developing multi-sensory artefacts that deal with the construction and social aspects of the video game culture. Interactive installations bring forth views of the computer logic, media criticism, a parody of technological achievements and childhood memories. The viewer is therefore included in the process of how the machine operates and the view on the relationship between man and machine transforms.

The exhibition is arriving at the Vžigalica Gallery after being hosted at the Bunkier Sztuki Contemporary Art Gallery in Krakow.

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA –

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing the research, production and presentation of transitory, experimental, and live art forms.

MoTA is a museum without a permanent collection or a fixed space. Instead, its programs are realised in different locations and contexts in temporary physical and virtual spaces.

MoTA organizes and supports transitory art in the form of continuous events, exhibitions and educational programs both locally and internationally. As its name indicates, MoTA examines what a museum can be today and in the future.

MoTA is in constant search for the new, the uncertain, and the undefined.

MoTA works on several continuous programmes & projects. We run MoTA Point – a Space for Art & Ideas, we curate and produce the annual SONICA Festival, in addition to regular music programmes such as SONICA Series and SONICA Classics.

Within the years of running our residency programme, we’ve established T.R.I.B.E. – a network of residency spaces in the Balkans & Eastern Europe.

We’ve also initiated the research and archive platforms and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
