Nonuments is a long term research project by MoTA (Museum of Transitory Art), Lubjana, Slovenia, that addresses hidden monuments and spaces that carry symbolic value in physical, mental and virtual landscapes. The purpose of its artistic productions and research is to define of the role of monuments today, especially the ways in which societies mark important moments within a location through landmarks and thus inscribing them into collective urban landscapes. The research and artistic production address questions of memory, representation, semantics and other aspects of monumentalism, as well as an attempt to publicly address the perception of public space and its role in urban everyday life.
