NONUMENT! Symposium
13-14 June 2019
CAMP Prague

What could European nonuments be? Which tensions could they release through their repurposing?
The core of the Nonument! Symposium will be a proposal of six European nonuments:
a hotel, a power factory, a railway, a congress center, control and dyspatching hi-tech center and a former bunker.
These nonuments address questions of ideology in infrastructural projects, public vs private corporate space, post-socialist monument preservation, and monuments as zones of conflict.
Through the presentation of artistic actions, theoretical and historical contexts, the symposium aims at a new understanding of these historical sites.

Save the date! Participation is free of charge.
Registrations open on 20 May at www.nonument.org

The term Nonument denotes 20th century architecture, monuments and public spaces that have undergone a shift in symbolic meaning or had lost it, as a consequence of political and social changes. Among other, Nonuments are monuments of previous regimes or public spaces of a post-socialist context. The two days symposium addresses the public/common through the lens of space and connects it to historical dilemmas of transitions, while engaging with possibilities of re-use and re-purpose through artistic interventions.

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.
