Third international NONUMENT! Symposium on decaying, destroyed and abandoned monuments, architecture and public space.
28 October from 14.00 to 21.00 live from Kino Šiška
In its first two years, the NONUMENT! project has, with the help of partners and associates from Europe and around the world, tackled the research into monuments, buildings and public space in a novel way. Instead of focusing on the initial projects, the focus was moved towards recontextualisations and changes experienced by these spaces over time. Instead of focusing on the intentions of artists and architects who created them, the focus was on the unpredictable new situations the spaces found themselves in. Instead of describing and archiving, the focus was on creating theoretical and artistic interventions in the disappearing heritage.
In October 2020, the first NONUMENT! book presenting of the work done in the last two years will be published.In the months before publishing the first NONUMENT! book, many – still active – public spaces and city centres have been transformed into nonuments. In the past, NONUMENT! was devoted to decaying, destroyed and abandoned monuments, buildings and public spaces of the twentieth century. At the third NONUMENT! Symposium, we will combine these thoughts with new thinking about the possible strategies of thought and intervention in the context of a continually transforming contemporary city. Through case studies of transforming buildings, squares and cities, guests from Ljubljana and abroad will think about the open use of space as a condition of survival.
