On September 12, MOT and "Algorithm of Actions" NGO will start accepting applications for more than 9 million hryvnias for art institutions affected by Russian aggression.
Any Ukrainian art institution damaged or completely destroyed by Russian attacks can apply by filling out the form here by December 1, 2023.
It is an initiative of the organizers of the most significant art project of the year, the Module of Temporality (MOT), Don't Take Fake, and the partners of the Ukrainian tour of the space, Algorithm of Actions, who want to draw global attention to art institutions, help restore Ukrainian art establishments, and show that culture is capable of supporting in difficult times.
All funds are generated by the Module of Temporality (MOT) project - tickets to the exhibition and special events, profit from the gifting desk, and sales of the DTF Magazine. They form a special fund that will be used for reconstruction. The number of projects the team will be able to support will depend on the final amount raised and the urgent needs of the institutions at the time of the fundraising. Currently, it is almost 9,000,000 hryvnias.
About the "Module of Temporality" (MOT)
MOT means "Module of Temporality". The basis of the "Module of Temporality" is an exhibition space featuring paintings, sculptures, installations, and audiovisual works by 28 artists from 10 countries. More than 45,000 visitors have already seen the art project in three cities in Ukraine.
The project aims to draw even more attention to Ukraine and raise funds to restore art institutions that have suffered from Russian aggression.
At first, the space worked in Kyiv for three months and then went on a tour of Ukraine - Dnipro, Lutsk, and in September-October, Lviv, the last stop of the Ukrainian tour. During the first weekend here, more than a thousand people visited the space, and the foundation received almost half a million hryvnias.
Currently, the space is traveling with the exhibition. Upon completion of the presentation, a charity auction with the artists' works will be held in Europe, the funds of which will also be directed to the MOT general fund.
How will the selection be made?
Based on the UNESCO list and data from the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, six damaged art institutions that need assistance in restoration and are located in the government-controlled areas of Ukraine (as of August 2023) have been identified.
The Foundation has also started accepting applications from institutions that are not on the official lists but need support for their recovery. Depending on the amount raised and the extent of the damage, one or more facilities will be supported.
With a specially formed expert group, the MOT team will review all applications and help select one or more institutions. The names of the experts will be available on the project's website and Instagram before the voting. The final decision will also depend on the funds raised, which will be finalized after the auction.
