Our 2019 autumn artist residence was awarded to the Kazakh artist Pasha Cas. Starting with the MON exhibition in which Cas presented two live performances, the artist also realized a series of further interventions in urban space across Berlin. You can read about the results of his 100-day artist residence in a book, which will be published in spring 2020 under the title "Pasha Cas, Berlincore. Five Interventions on Limits of the Visible".
The works selected for the permanent collection of Museum of Now are highlights of our individual editions debating the contemporary politics, economics, gender and ethnicity. The growing collection is set up as a reflection of contemporary artistic practices around the world and currently includes approximately 80 works drawn from the museum´s curatorial activities. The MON collection features a variety of approaches to art-making and follows the unique chronology of the museum´s journey.
The Museum of Now publications are an integral part of the Museum’s mission. MON publications exemplify the scholarship of the Museum’s staff, associates and collaborating artists, and serve as a valuable resource to visitors, collectors, scholars, students, and art lovers alike.
MON is committed to advancing new ideas about artists and artworks, and pushing the boundaries of museum practice. Working directly with artists, we seek out innovative approaches to the exhibition, conservation, and interpretation of our collection. From the intersection of art and technology to the depth of a single artist’s work, the MON publication program plays a key role in our efforts to present the art of the NOW.
