City as Museum | Denis Leo Hegic | TEDxMagdeburg

Our co-founding director Denis Leo Hegic delivered an inspiring TEDtalk about a museum, which is the city itself.
In order to understand the "city as museum", he took us from the 18th century Rome to Berlin of 20th century.

"At a time, when we are observing rising tendencies towards segregation and a time when wall building seems to be dominating the media more then our celebration of bringing the wall down (...) Art - and especially the one which is accessible for everyone - is one of the pillars of our democratic expression."

Ο The Krank βιώνει την απομόνωση στο Βερολίνο και την κάνει τέχνη

For our Greek-speaking audience:
A great insight into The Kranks work - in the LIFO interview with the artist himself, whose performance work "un-safe" we premiered last week at MON.

"The Krank is experiencing isolation and turns it into art
Trapped in Berlin, The Krank narrates the agony of his daily life and describes how he managed to work with the Athenian artist Eliza Krikoni despite the quarantine."

In 2016 Dan Stockholm´s father suddenly passed away.
Subsequently, the artist methodically touched the entire house of his father. After the last part of the house has been touched, the artist created a number of negative plasters of his hands.
Finally, Stockholm presented two series of works - "House'" and "By Hand" - both of great emotionality and spiritual power, allowing us to wander through the house of his departed parent.

Dan Stockholm is part of our ongoing “Distant Bodies” virtual exhibition open calling artists and creatives from all over the world to explore the question what happens, when our bodies can no longer come together.

un-safe / Art performance by The Krank & Eliza Krikoni

Today we premiered the art performance "un-safe" - realized by two artists in over 2.000 km distance to each other.
The Krank and Eliza Krikoni´s art performance is part of our "Distant Bodies" exhibition, in which we are exploring the question what happens, when our bodies can no longer come together?

The Krank und Krikoni embark on a journey into a shared space of proximity and intimacy, yet thousands of kilometers apart. They are meeting in a world of digital exchange of bits and bytes, in which geography and physical bodies become irrelevant.

We are thrilled by the artist´s speed of conceptualization and realization, when developing this piece. It is another proof, that in times of crisis, artists are the most important connectors. Our appreciation & love go to The Krank and Eliza Krikoni for bringing us this work of art.

Davids Brief an die Berliner

Ich heiße David.
Ich bin 516 Jahre alt.
Aufgewachsen in Florenz.
Wo ich immer noch lebe.

Ich habe vieles gesehen.
Kriege und Plagen.
Sie kamen mit Wucht
Und doch gingen sie vorbei.

Mein Körper ist aus Marmor.
Meine Hände wurfbereit.
Aber meine grösste Stärke
Liegt in eurem Geist.

Oft wart ihr vorm Untergang
Habt dem Tod ins Auge geschaut.
Und immer Wege gefunden
Mit Liebe und Verstand.

Manche Stolpesteine
Sehen riesig aus.
Aber denkt immer dran
Was der kleinste Stein ausrichten kann.

Auch ich
Habe meinen Goliath
Den ich täglich
Aufs Neue besiegen muss.

Ihr seid nicht allein.
Gemeinsam sind wir stark.
Ihr habt mich erschaffen.
Ich bin immer da.

Ich bin ein Italiener.
Und blicke stets nach Rom.
Doch wenn dies alles vorbei ist
Komme ich nach Neukölln.

aus "Davids Brief an die Berliner" / Museum of Now, März 2020

MON Mobiles Museum
Du kannst nicht ins Museum? Dann kommt das Museum zu DIR!

Wir rufen den Open Call “MONmobile” für Künstler und alle kreative Berliner aus, um gemeinsam Kunst und Kultur weiterhin zu den Menschen zu bringen. DAS MONmobil wird durch Berlin fahren und Hauswände zum leuchten bringen mit Kunstprojektionen auf den Hausfassaden. In Momenten der Dukelheit brauchen wir am meisten licht. JETZT ist die Zeit, in der Kunst uns stärken und vereinen kann.
In dieser ausserordentlichen Zeit haben wir die Pflicht, den Menschen Kunst und Kultur näher zu bringen und das kulturelle Leben vor einem Stillstand zu bewahren. Da das Publikum nicht mehr zu uns kommen kann,m werden wir eben zum Publikum fahren und einen physischen und digitalen Raum bieten, in dem sich die Community gemeinsam engagieren kann. von Multimedia-Kunstwerken und der Kommunikation der Bewohner als Reaktion auf die aktuelle Situation der Berliner Gemeinde und darüber hinaus präsentieren.

We are announcing an open call “MONmobile” for all artists and creatives to bring their art to the people.

We welcome Vladimir Abikh, one of Russia’s most aspiring contemporary artists, to our digital exhibition “DISTANT BODIES”. .
.
After just a few weeks of human standstill, we experience the incredible regenerative power of nature: the air pollution over China is disappearing, the canals in Venice clearing. It's almost as if Mother Earth wants to send us the message to reset to zero.

00:00:00:00 is the title of Vladimir's work, with which he leaves the linear understanding of time and rather illustrates the circular convergence of all things. Abikh is taking us into the poetry of the sewers.

Our digital exhibition “DISTANT BODIES” displays submissions of our worldwide open call for artists and creatives and will be running for the duration of COVID-19. Join our virtual show, enjoy the art and contribute with your ideas. We must prevent art and culture from coming to a standstill.

9 TO 5 by Bojan Stojcic - Museum of Now

Traces of traces of traces: is it not this experience that is essential for artistic creation?
Our next artist presented in the digital MON exhibition "Distant Bodies" is Bojan Bojan Stojčić from Sarajevo, Bosnia with his work "Nine to Five".

Wordsworth called poetry "emotion recollected in tranquility", and Bojan Stojcic is creating from memory. And it doesn't matter whether the memory is of his own thoughts or that of an office scanner. The 6 “oily fingertips scans” are digital prints of finger traces collected from the glass surface of an office scanner.

Stojcic perceives his environment with a detective accuracy and translates the perception into precise and sophisticated concepts. Join us in exploring his art and in our quest of showing extraordinary talents - in spite of all lockdowns!

CRYSTAL by Julia Borovaya - Museum of Now

The next work presented as part of our digital exhibition "Distant Bodies" is the performance "CRYSTAL - The mental body of menthol" by artist-scientist duo Julia Borovaya and Edward Rakhmanov from SAVE LAB.

Artists and scientists often need to invent new concepts and technologies to accomplish their goals. With the performance “Crystal”, Borovaya and Rakhmanov courageously take on the relation between physical experience in the sense of a performative work of art and a scientific experiment.

It is therefore not surprising that their laboratory, in which the hybrid works are being created, is a former bomb shelter in the basement of Moscow University: a space for saving people.

SARA BONAVENTURA for DISTANT BODIES exhibition

We are happy to open our digital exhibition "Distant Bodies" with the fascinating work “Chronoscope” by the artist Sara Bonaventura. @bonaventurasara
“Chronoscope” is an instrument for accurate measurements of very brief intervals of time. Sara Bonaventura's work with the same title, is of an exceptional contemporary value. The artist is transferring her own desire to slow down. At the same time, Bonaventura lets us experience a transformation of a Kafkaesque beauty – however, a process that is only possible in harmony with nature.

We are currently experiencing a global standstill like never before. The artist, who is in a lockdown in Venice herself, observes how nature is currently recovering the canals of the city and regenerating them in a chronoscopical motion. Bonaventura´s "decelerated" work was screened in one of the worlds busiest harbors in Hong Kong.

We warmly welcome you to our digital exhibition. The full experience and further insights into the exhibition and the artwork by Bonaventura on our website www.museum-of-now.com/distant-bodies

OPEN CALL: Distant Bodies - What happens when our bodies can no longer come together?

Open Call / DISTANT BODIES: What happens when our bodies can no longer come together?
MON is going digital. The current COVID19 outbreak is forcing all of us to distance our bodies while looking for alternative spaces of coming together. This is shifting the relationship between technology and culture in general. Before this crisis, technology seemed to be the panacea, the bearer of all utopias. But, at this moment it is hard to believe in the great digital redemption. The big technology hype is over - and yet - we all have to go digital now. Together with you, we want to turn our attention to the questions: What does it mean to be human? What are we for each other?

Submit your artworks now - we will be displaying the submissions on our digital exhibition webspace, our social media channels and the ones of our partner institutions. We are in the process of learning-by-doing and have to allow us to experiment together with you, including any errors that may go along with it. We can do this together and avoid the art and culture coming to a standstill.

#flattenthecurve create from home and send the right impulse

The Museum of Now is developing a digital platform, on which we will present the submitted works as a digital exhibition and enable communication with the audience and each other via streams and real time interaction.
Submit your work now. Details available on our website - link in bio.

Open Call "Distant Bodies" / Museum of Now

DISTANT BODIES: What happens when our bodies can no longer come together?

https://www.museum-of-now.com/distant-bodies-open-call

Since last night we received a huge number of inquiries from you regarding our "Distant Bodies" open call for artists and creatives. You can now read all the specific information about the call directly on our website.

#flattenthecurve
In this extraordinary time, it is our most important concern not to let art and cultural life come to a standstill. We are therefore developing a digital platform in which we want to show your work along with video streamings and real-time communication with the audience and each other. We want to work together on the question of what happens when our bodies can no longer come together?

#submit
We will keep the Distant Bodies project running as long as the virus is around. Therefore, there is no specific deadline and we will be accepting the submissions continuously.

#adaptandgrowtogether
Maybe we can not come up with an instant vaccine for the virus, because most of us are not scientists. But we can adapt to the changed situation and grow together.
We can continue contributing to the most important thing in times of crisis: culture

Open Call / DISTANT BODIES: What happens if our bodies can no longer come together?

We are announcing an open call for your artistic answers to the question above. All selected works to be displayed beyond the limitations of physical space.

At the moment we are all experiencing more than ever that art plays an essential role in overcoming an imposed physical distance: people sing together, across the street from balconies and windows, spontaneous creative groups emerge on the net that create works at a distance. Art has always connected, but what does it mean when our bodies no longer come together? How does our mental and physical body gravity work? And what are the effects of the lack of it?

We are locked down but more connected than ever. Become part of the digital #museumofnow and submit your work – we will include the best suggestions in the museum's permanent collection.
