Starting as The Bring In Take Out Living Archive aims at creating an interactive platform for sharing and collaborative work in the digital and public space, in which the politics of remembering, contemporary art and translation of feminist knowledge happen.

Red Min(e)d are using artistic, creative and research means and their intersecting strategies to create an event be it exhibition, laboratory and public archive of women artists and feminist art.

The main referential backgrounds are contemporary art, feminist theory and practice, as well as post/Yugoslav space which function like a polis as defined by Hannah Arendt: “The polis, properly speaking, is not the city-state in its physical location; it is the organization of the people as it arises out of acting and speaking together, and its true space lies between people living together for this purpose, no matter where they happen to be” (The Human Condition. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1958, p. 198.)

The LA tends to be transparent, socially engaged and methodologically innovative platform which gathers artists, researches and curators. The project evolves and processes through LA editions in Zagreb, Ljubljana, Sarajevo, Vienna, Belgrade, Stockholm, Zurich and elsewhere. The concept further on develops with every new edition.

Red Min(e)d together with Deuje Babe, Svetlana Maraš and students of the Fine Art Academy are inviting you for lectures, socialising, exhibition and sound performance.

The community is open for all, also for men, and by being potentially feminist is – through organizing and preparing the event, and even more through socializing and debates during the event – encouraging interpersonal relations and knowledge sharing between festival participants and general public in wider Cerkljansko area.

Frequencies and Waves of Communication

16.00 – 19.00
Red Min(e)d: Sound – (non)articulated spaces of social imagination, introduction

Svetlana Maraš: Where is my sound art?
participative performance and lecture

Participative performance of the piece Pendulum music (2010) is followed by the comparative analysis of this work and Pendulum music made in 1968 by Steve Reich. This introduces us to the works of conceptual artists and composers from the 1960s’s where we search for the origins of what we recognize today under the term “sound art”. Following the idea of early experimental music as an opposing force to traditional understanding of musicality at large, we are exposed to the examples from history that depict the increasing urge of introducing extra-musical elements in music, which was a driving force for the emergence of sound art.

Friday, May 8th

16.00 – 19.00
Presentations, artist talks, gathering with students of postgraduate programme Living Archive:Nika Ham, Elma Đelmo, Jasmina Grudnik, Martina Jurak, Mojca Mikolič

Svetlana Maraš: Sound performance

For years, she has been using sound as a tool for exploration of musical form, expression and meaning in the wider artistic context. She studied composition at Belgrade University of Art and Sound in New Media at Aalto University in Helsinki. Her works have been composed for and within various media. She is exploring the boundaries of musical being with realization of musical ideas through sound, text, physical object or digital technology. Her fascination with the relation of music and everyday object resulted in theoretical research Embodied composition: Treatment and meaning of physical object in experimental music and sound art that was a part of her graduate thesis at Media Lab, Helsinki.


The event is funded by Erste Foundation and WUS Austria.

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.
