Institutio Media together with Lithuanian Interdisciplinary Artists’ Association and Ideas Block presents an exhibition “HUMANS, NON HUMANS, WITH AND WITHOUT HUMANS”

“We must begin really to listen to the rest of life. As just one melody in the living opera we are repetitious and persistent. We may think ourselves creative and original but in those talents we are not alone. Admit it or not, we are only a single theme of the orchestrated life-form. With its glorious nonhuman past and its uncertain but provocative future, this life, our life, is embedded now as it always has been, in the rest of Earth’s sentient symphony.”

Lynn Margulis


The performative presentation of the book “(In)dependent Contemporary Art Histories. Artist-run Initiatives in Lithuania 1980–2022” (3rd volume).

Richly illustrated 624-page publication “(In)dependent contemporary art histories. Artist-run initiatives in Lithuania 1980–2022” allows to travel back in time from the 1980s to the present day and experience how Lithuanian artists have lived, worked and organised a wide range of activities. It is practically the only history of Lithuanian contemporary art published to date. During the presentation visitors will have the opportunity to get a closer look at the processes of collecting and writing the stories. The book is published by MENE in cooperation with the Lithuanian Interdisciplinary Artists‘ Association (LIAA).
