Nuomenart (from the Greek νοούμενον - the essence comprehended by the mind) is the art of creating new meanings, the play of thought through the art form, the disclosure of the intelligible through the game, that is, through art. The noumenograf is neither an artist nor a philosopher. He only uses the means of philosophy in comprehending new meanings and uses artistic means to give them sensual outlines. He opens a new eidos through emotion, bringing pleasure to himself and others from the emotional experience of previously unknown meanings

The Noumen ART Creative Lab Public Sessions/Festivals are a series of annual multi-species cultural events showcasing the most talented and cutting-edge creations by contemporary artists in the fields of music, visual arts, performing arts, screen arts, synthesis of the arts, literature and poetry, including including, based on regional and ethnic artistic traditions

The Noumen ART festival, formerly known as the festival of contemporary intellectual art, has been held since 2005

The previous XI international festival Noumen ART took place in August 2022 in Osttirol, Austria. The festival was held on a shortened program

The Noumen Art is a festival for intellectuals

The beginning of our summer season 2023 will be special: this time in ancient Istanbul and beyond Cappadocia, the lapping of the Mediterranean Sea and the echo of the Cappadocian caves will merge with an enchanting sound of Palle Mikkelborg's and Nils Petter Molvaer's trumpets, Terje Rypdal’s guitar, these great ECM Style protagonists. It will be the most beautiful sound next to silence!

The bewitching sound of Aziza Mustafa Zadeh piano and other free jazz musicians from Azerbaijan will organically merge with the landscapes of Istanbul.

And also the echo of the rebellious texts of the Nietzschean Zarathustra will be heard over the chimneys of the fairies in the fabulous land of Cappadocia. A reincarnation of Lou Salome, Ksanda WhiteBird, will sing those texts to the mountains, an unhurried mimo-dramatic sacrament called Japanese butoh will take place.

The bewitching sound of free jazz musicians from Azerbaijan will organically merge with the landscapes of Istanbul. And yet, coming out of nowhere, the breath of distant Central Asian steppes will burst into the air of fabulous Cappadocia, along with bizarre installations of desperate Kazakh actionists led by the brilliant Almagul Menlibayeva!

There will still be very many other things - delightful, strange, captivating mind and imagination...

SPECIAL PROGRAM

September 21-27 (Cappadocia)

The exclusive daytime part of the festival program is an immersive dystopian performance using augmented reality, tied to the tourist routes of Istanbul

The performance consists of two parts:

I. HOW MUCH WILL COST PHYSIOLOGICAL IMMORTALITY (cyberpunk trip)

Summary: anonymization of the elites and the new normal, world favelas and the criminal vertical, WBD and the state plan, AI and the occult, a supercomputer on the moon and immortality, posthuman and homo melius

II. WHO WAS THE GODS, DEMONS AND ALL OTHER (godspunk trip)

Summary: esotericism and occult teachings are nothing but the later profaned interpretations of long-lost high technologies, which were owned by the first civilizational-technological cadence
