Gosposvetska 12, Ljubljana, Slovenia
Nonument researches hidden monuments and spaces carry symbolic value in physical and virtual landscapes. It attempts to redefine monuments as those spaces where collective social efforts and interactions occur. We see this as the first step in the creation of a re-defined monumentalism and a possible re-charging of public spaces. It is a growing collection of nonuments, a methodology to document and preserve them and digital archive to map collective urban landscapes.
