NONUMENT is a multi year research project created by the MoTA Museum, addressing nonexisting monuments and mapping memory in locations that carry symbolic value to physical, mental and virtual landscapes. It consists of artistic productions that redefine the role of monuments today, especially the ways in which societies mark landmarks in time and space and thus inscribe them into urban landscapes. The research and artistic production questions memory, representation, semantics and other aspects of monumentalism, as well as celebrates the perception of public space and its role in everyday urban life today.
