From March 10th till May 30th MoKS has offered its basement for a small experiment- namely local community has lacked place, where youngsters can meet and spend their time as they want. Several parents from the community took the initiative, MoKS offered a temporary space and so the Mooste Youth Center was born. As a result of that we have also youth-worker in residence, who will help to start-up the Youth Center. We strongly hope that Youth Center will find permanent place and its activities be supported by community. If you as an artist want to work with some of the youngsters, then they are very open and perhaps can become also assistants for your work if you need one.
MoKS AIRs of November Anne- Liis Kogan ja Jorge Uriel Najera agreed to visit Vastse- Kuuste primary-school. It was our 1st visit to that school and very warm one. Our host, art teacher Kersti was very nice and flexible and seemed to be as exited about forthcoming art class as much as students. I think Anne-Liis and Jorge managed to create quite a mess at kids and teacher heads and probably also enouth curiosity, so i hope that thanks to their visit there are more people now in the world who will not yawn when they hear word "(contemporary) art" or make other faces.
First lesson was by Anne- Liis, she gave quick climpse into her doings and discussed with kids some issues related to her work. Later she gave out old analogue cameras and gave them excercise kids should do for the next meeting. Week later we picked up films and cameras, after developing Anne-Liis viewed and discussed photoes with kids. Unfortunately some of them did not use the possibility and did not take any photoes. However, they seemed to be very interested about continuing working with analog cameras, so i proposed to continue more from technical side next year.
In that morning i went to school with Jorge there was 1st snow on the ground. Road was slippery and we were a bit late. It took for a while to get equipment working as wished. As Jorge is using electronics in his work, building and programming his installations all by himself he also decided to give some interest urging workshop for kids. Batteries, LEDs, shortcircuits, pink flames and smoke. Even girls were excited and no- one even took a break... Before leaving Jorge asked kids to use their new knowledge wisely and in right place, i added that it is also important to keep in mind if they want to see more artists at their school in future.

Welcome to the new MoKS website. The process of migrating from the old site (and server) to the new system has been slow but steady. As you can see the new form is ready but much of the content from our archive needs to be added. As MoKS has been active for over 10 years there is a lot of material to add. Please be patient with us and if you are looking for something specific do not hesitate to contact us and ask. Also, if you are a former artist or participant of an event we always welcome archive material such as written texts about your experiences and/or audio-visual materials like photos and links to your work from MoKS online.
"If my chief wants me to work faster, of course ..." (the subtitles on the film still). Vaikelu tööstuudios lõunapausi ajal. / Still life in the studio while team is having lunch. Yesterday, on November 21st, the Worldfilm Festival team gathered at MoKS to work here for few days. The next Worldfilm festival will be held on 18th to 24th of March 2013, and it's already the 10th anniversary! It's really nice to see the team members being busily around in the house, and then disappearing for hours to their working studio. Some of them are busy choosing the films for the program, from a selection of 200-300 films! The others work on everything else that is necessary for the festival to be successful (like funding and communication). From previous experience I venture to say that the working days for them are getting longer and longer, and sleeping hours shorter and shorter... But let's keep our fingers crossed and wish them good luck! We are really happy here at MoKS to have Jaanika and Pille, Eva and Siim, Taavi and Reimo and Worldfilm – our friends in life and film – here with us! [Siiri]
Here are some more pictures from AVAMAA'12, taken by MoKS camera. The beehive is closed, and many of the buildings destroyed, by man force and nature, by will and by accident. A pity, perhaps. But, you say, this was to be expected, if you build from cardboard. Thus the end of Moksville was symbolically ruled by fire and water. One after another, these two elements took power over us, and we finished our week with burning the energy tower in the morning (another Error Event) and a real shower of rain in the afternoon. The water had really taken its turn to govern when we tried patiently to lit the maboro-ship for sending the ancestors back... from the lake to the river, from the river to the ocean... Indeed, we had been inventing all sorts of different ways to make cardboard waterproof – but by the end of Sunday's showers, it had also somehow become fireproof! The city is destroyed, and a new Rome will soon rise from its ashes. Yet something remains, when the Moksville is gone. Some memories with beautiful people remain, and some dreams and plans for the future. And some building experience as well. (madli)
After a week of planning, testing and constructing Moksville was ready for its 24 hour existence starting at 14:00 on Saturday, August 18th. With a short ribbon cutting ceremony, our little village was open to the public. In the end we expanded beyond the original set of projects to include some news ones that grew out of the weeks activities at the site. Moksville was comprised of the following structures and activities:
Based on the amount of visitors, this seemed to be a very interesting and accessible event for the public. Many of the local residents of Mooste came out to witness our creations as well as a number of around Estonia and abroad (Turkey, India and Finland to name a few). The program for the day was fairly relaxed. Besides all of the projects being open, there were a few special events like and origami workshop to prepare for the ancestral ceremony and then the ceremony itself in the evening. The modular playground transformed itself into a ping-pong table where an extensive tournament was held. text and photos by John Grzinich
The screen was set up, audience was coming, the projector needed something we could put it on (problem solved thanks to our tripods/bins/whatever else..) and the generator seemed to be able to overcome the effort of 3 whole movies.
9.00 pm - screening started!
to please the local kids we started with a short estonian animation movie with english subtitles... the viewers managed to get through the green bear's "tricks".
The effort required by the generator started to increase, from 10 min to a half-an-hour documentary about moks ten-years activity; the crowd, after a long working day, started to feel the effort and so we saw the first ones leaving the place towards the 'headquarter'.
Nevertheless it was quite interesting seeing the work done by moks groups and especially we discovered peculiar characters in moks community, from the 'artist grandpa' to 'rockstar cook'.
after the success of this preliminary phase of moks film festival, the so much expected moment has come, Nanni Moretti is coming to Moksville with his 'Dear Diary' that, for the occasion, will become 'Dear Moksville'.
Everything seemed set, people (or those who have not left yet) are waiting impatiently, although kids couldn't keep up, however we think they would have left soon anyway.
Little check on the generator, setting up subtitles, and go!!
On the Vespa scooter through the streets of an empty Rome during August passing by historical and popular neighbourhoods...
Viewers keep decreasing predictably, while unexpected ones start to show up (bugs, mosquitos and possibly ticks)
After almost a hour, after visiting the suburbs of Rome and the place of the tragic departure of Pasolini, we leave the Vespa to take the ferry towards the island of Lipari.
we have to admit that the subtitles, although quite thorough, left out some dialectical details, but the very substance of the arrival of Moretti to Moksville remains..
As Nanni Moretti arrives in Stromboli, at 3/4 of the movie, a strange sound came from distance... a few seconds and suddenly the bad news... crack!!
Darkness . The generator, tired and sleepy almost as we were, could not resist the two hours and a half of the movie night, the crowd began to grumble, but eventually gave up and accepted that the unexpected can happen, even in Moksville.
We just had time to close and cover the cinema screen, light up a fire and postpone the rest of the movie to the next screening night...
In any case Nanni Moretti goes to moksville, hoping to come back again.
