SENKING (DE)

Senking is a long-standing project of German DJ, electronic music producer and creator of audiovisual concerts Jen Massla, which has already started l. 1995. Massel comes from Cologne, a citiy with a long tradition of electronic music, which is reflected in his work especially in its creative use of sounds  of analog synthesizers, which are then woven into contemporary resonance of electronic music, supplied in the traditions of techno music, minimalism, glitch, dub and dubstep and movie soundtracks. His latest disc ‘Capsize Recovery’, which is already earning rave reviews, leads us into a dark sounding universe with slowed down bass and drums over which hovers a grim atmosphere, wrapped in the dance  pulse.

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 ArtistTalk.eu and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
