CALL FOR ARTISTIC WORKS
Calling all artists, architects, designers and creative activists...
What this is about
“NOT out of sight, NOT out of mind” is a creative information campaign that aims to increase public awareness of consumer material waste issues and resource efficiency in today’s society. “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” has become a public mantra in recent years when confronting the personal and environmental impact of surplus waste (plastic, paper, metal, glass packaging). Despite sizable and complex threats like climate change and pollution, material waste is something we can relate to and take action towards in our everyday lives. Some of the questions we wish to address with this campaign include: What does material waste mean and how do we confront it? How can we best comprehend the scale of the material waste problem? What role can everyday citizens play in the waste management process? What kinds of creative solutions are available for the management and reuse of material waste?
“NOT out of sight, NOT out of mind” will take the form of a traveling exhibition of 14 selected artworks/projects displayed in 6 different high visibility public locations (mostly outdoor) across northern Latvia and southern Estonia. The exhibition is carried out in the frame of the WasteArt project, a cross-border cooperation between associated partners in the region. Project proposals are open to all creative disciplines including visual/sound artists, sculptors, photographers, designers and architects. Projects may be carried out by individuals or small teams from Latvia, Estonia and abroad. The opening date for the first exhibition is currently set for May 1st, 2019. Each opening in a new location will be marked by a public communication event emphasizing the message of the campaign.
The call is open to international artists, however out of 14 total selected projects a minimum of 7 projects will be selected from Latvian and Estonian applicants.
Conditions for selected projects of the “NOT out of sight, NOT out of mind” campaign

Aitäh kõigile fantastilistele kandideerijatele. Meil oli väga raske valikut teha aga selleks korraks oleme assistent- majavaimu leidnud.
Meie uus majavaim on Tuuli Tsahkna ja ta toimetab MoKSis ajavahemikus
Tuuli töökohustuste hulka kuulub:
From April 11-13, 2018 MoKS hosted first year students of Interior Architecture from the Estonian Academy of Arts for an intensive workshop on sound and listening by John Grzinich. Working with the crossovers between sound and architecture has been an active topic since 2011 when MoKS was a co-organizing partner for Tuned City Tallinn. Topics included, sound and the environment, soundscapes, spatial perception, architectural acoustics, performativity and sound design. As is often the case, Mooste provided a suitable backdrop and environment in which to explore (we were lucky with the weather too). Photos by Evelin Kruus and John Grzinich.
MOKS 2016 Yearbook is available for viewing or downloading at ISSUU.
The yearbook was compiled and edited by Evelyn Grzinich with the help of John Grzinich and many of the artists themselves. The layout and design was done by Agnieszka Pokrywka.
