12 a.m.-2 p.m. These are not workshops: a creative get-together for all generations outside the MSUM, next to the yellow camping trailer and a tour of the exhibition This is Not a Museum. Mobile Devices Lurking at the Slovenian Ethnographic Museum, with Boris Beja and Dana Terzić

This is the last opportunity to see the show that was organized together by the MSUM, the Slovenian Ethnographic Museum and the Embassy of Spain and that includes various artistic approaches to realizing the idea of a mobile museum.

6-9 p.m. The Ciza Museum in action

The Ciza (=pushcart) Museum was made at the Art, Social Sphere and Mobile Constructions workshop, which formed part of the exhibition This Is Not a Museum. It is meant to be taken to well-frequented points in the city and serve as an aid to start public dialogue, discussions, presentations or other forms of communication. The Ciza Museum is the local example of a mobile museum and as such included in the exhibition This Is Not a Museum. Before it leaves Ljubljana and travels to the exhibition's next destination, it will offer its vegetable cargo to the passersby one last time.
The action will be carried out by the workshop participants.

6-8 p.m. A space art workshop for all generations outside the MSUM and related to the exhibition The Present and Presence - Repetition 1

If you could exhibit in space, what kind of work would you make? Join us in the space art - UMBOTs, each with its own logo, name, message, and drawing.

The workshop refers to the Biomechatronic Projectile Noordung by Dragan Živadinov::Dunja Zupančič::Miha Turšič.

6-8 p.m. A guided tour of the exhibition The Present and Presence- Repetition 1 and special projects in Slovene by curators Igor Španjol and Adela Železnik.

The tour will cover such topics as contemporaneity, art and war, new media, art and popular culture, body art, art and archiving, and institutional critique.

6-8 p.m. White Noise: 6 performances outside the MSUM and an interactive installation with commercials.
Students of the Poljane High School will be appearing in the performances, under the mentorship of Nina Ostan and Mateja Ocepek in collaboration with the artist Sašo Sedlaček.
