Ubani Tbilisi Cityscape Research Center in collaboration with the Nonument Group is announcing an open call for participation in a research project Nonuments of Tbilisi.

The project will be realized in 2 phases, starting with research trips to selected Nonuments with Martin Bricelj Baraga, a co-founder of the Nonument Group. In one-day sightseeing around Tbilisi, Baraga will present the idea of Nonuments, the methodology of Nonument Group, and an in situ exhibition of previous Nonuments from Central Europe. This initiative will continue in September with a workshop on these selected Nonuments (and some others that we will decide on collectively).

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.
