MOTA015 The Art of Economy

Open Doors 11 February 2023


MOTA 015

MOTA015 The Art of Economy is the next topic in their migrant series of discussions around artist’s questions. The topic points towards the ways we invent economies and how they appear in our practices from the questions of behaviour, sustainability and sharing the ways in which we respond to and make sense of the world of finance. We are also interested in how the world of finance ‘imagines’ itself, calculates the future and relates to stories.
Question formulated by Désorceler la Finance.

MOTA 000 is a series of nomadic conversations in Brussels criscrossing and connecting the city’s artists through their shared questions and enquiries.

The aim of MOTA 000 is to create temporary communities around artist-questions, to propose, debate, discuss, share and problematize bursting through disciplinary, linguistic and other precieved borders. To create a porous space to come together in difference around the questions that drive our practices.

MOTA 000 is Liselore Vandeput, Eszter Nemethi and Julia Rubies, and the artists present. Each month an artist is asked (someone we have met directly or got to know through our open call) to articulate and propose a specific question with us around a theme. The conversations then follow a discursive score to propose, open and debate these questions together.

MOTA 000 is also a discursive score made up of a theme and provocation, a question articulated and briefly proposed, small discussion and a general debate. It is also tea, coffee, beer and olives. A shifting landscape of venues and people, enquiries and points of view.

MOTA 000 strongly believes in hospitality, open doors and our ethical obligation for curiosity.
