MoTA - Museum of Transitory Art

The TRANSITORY NETWORK PUBLIC FORUM (Belgrade, 22 – 24 July), is now accepting research papers. Social Scientists, Cultural Researchers, Art Managers, Curators, Artists and anyone interested in the topic is encouraged to apply. We specially welcome creative research and performative presentations.

Transitory Art is a concept that responds to the necessity to map out a specific landscape of creative and research practices that responds to the contexts and challenges proposed by Globalization. This umbrella/concept tries to define the variety of artistic productions and research that are becoming increasingly representative of our multicultural and trans local era. It is a concept that develops in the time of new media ubiquitous use as a tool to represent the reapropiation of alternative discourses found within consumption and production. The definition of Transitory Art does not rely only though in the use of new media as a subversive strategy of interaction and experimentation but also in the retooling of the usabilities of traditional media as a means to broaden the scope of art’s multiple new functionalities. Transitory Art then tries to reveal itself in the everyday, within the strategies of place and space creation, use and occupation.

The Transitory Network is proposed as an open platform that aims to link different institutions with a similar mindset, that is: the dissemination of Transitory Art through the organization of Transitory AIR Program and the research, creation, presentation and distribution of Transitory Art.

In order to discuss and present the Transitory Network, the Transitory Network Public Forum (TNPF) has been organized. The TNPF will be a platform, a knowledge sharing and a networking event that will take place in Belgrade during the 22nd and the 24th July 2011.

  1. ‘Why is art relevant today? Meaningful interactions, New Medias and the public space’.
  2. ‘Transitoriness vs. permanence: creative practices in the era of hyper-mobility’.
  3. ‘East Europe as fictional space: Socio-political contexts, contemporary art initiatives and creative networks’.
