NeMe is a non profit, non government, Cyprus registered cultural organisation founded in November 2004. NeMe works on two platforms - a virtual and an itinerant one - and focuses on contemporary theories and their intersection with the arts.

NeMe's itinerant platform, the "IMCA" (Independent Museum of Contemporary Art) presents NeMe projects which include, exhibitions, performances, new media events, symposia and archives. The form of the IMCA is determined as a practice or process by the nature of each project with the notion of the exhibition "space" being constantly revised and redefined.

NeMe resides in two sites:

* provides a service by publishing critical texts and filtered cultural information which includes arts news, calls as well as providing a forum for public discussion. documents of all NeMe off and on line activities.

Manifesta 6 Forum Archives

NeMe has secured certain key posts (from 29 May - 4 June 2006) of the now closed forum of Manifesta 6 as saved by Janna, a neme and manifesta forum participant.

View the last discussions before Manifesta 6 was cancelled and its forum closed on! . also hosts articles posted in the Cypriot press regarding the M6 issue as well as a discussion regarding the M6 cancellation.


Manifesta 6 Cancelled

Manifesta 6, the Europe based international biennial of Contemporary Art, seems to have been cancelled due to disagreements between the IFM (International Foundation Manifesta) and NFA (Nicosia for Art). We have recently received an announcement by NFA and earlier today, the curators' (Mai Abu ElDahab, Anton Vidokle and Florian Waldvogel) response to that announcement in our forum at

The cancellation is a very sad both for the international art scene and for Cyprus too.

Please do contribute to the discussion either here at rhizome, at NeMe, or at the Manifesta 6 forum (whose closure seems to be imminent)


Manifesta 6 alternative forum

Responding to various posts in the official Manifesta 6 forum at we offer as an alternative forum for discussing the M6 issues.

We offer this space in the spirit of open debate, free speech, the right to information and the demand for accountability.

Please note that if we expect others to be accountable for their actions, we too must not shield ourselves behind the cloak of anonymity. So lets really promote openness and engagement in this most vital discussion.
