TRANSITORY OPERATION
 
a project in Ulaanbaatar (Mongolia) July /August  2006

..wherever you go..

........................................................................................................

Artists circle the globe in caravans: they meet for ritualized events in

spaces art. They search for possible pastures in the deserts of the 
cities. Artist are on the road. They organize themselves as individuals,

form networks and use existing structures for their encounters.
Artists must rely on hospitality. They speak for an international 
community  and are transmitters of openness, they represent a 
development that today defines the most various aspects of work and 
communication.

Ulaanbaatar finds itself in a situation of transition between the 
demands of global capitalism and the traditions of personal commitment. 
It is a society torn between postsocialist  entitlement and the 
renaissance of rediscovered nomadic freedom.

For the project TRANSITORY  artist are invited to react to the 
environment of Ulaanbaatar with specific work proposals. The realize 
pieces through performance and installation in the vicinity of 
Suchbaatar square.  Surrounding venues such as Union of Mongolian Artist

Gallery, Modern Art Gallery and Blue Sun Gallery cooperate throughout 
the event involving Mongolian Artists.   

We are looking for projects that reside within the context of pubic art 
and answer specifically to the conditions of the exhibition situation in

Ulaanbaatar. The emphasis of the work process should address 
improvisation and  communication as aspect of transitory operations.
 
Artist, critics and curators will present different positions regarding 
the subject of the nomadic for discussion. Possible key words in this 
exchange could be: Urban Nomads - Movement and Balance- decentralized 
expression- networking and needs- shifting ideas...

A catalogue with images and texts of this project will be published 
(Engl. /Mongol).   

The results of the project should emanate beyond  Ulaanbaatar and 
encourage dialog with other international institutions.
