During October 2010 and March 2011 Pau Cata, coordinator of ceRCCa, was awarded an Erasmus Young Enterpreneur Program to collaborate with MoTa (Museum of Transitory Art) in Ljubljana/Slovenia. During his time in Ljubljana and together with MoTa Team he developed the conceptual framework of the Transitory Network of AIR Programs in the Balkans and Easter Europe, the first strage in the development of T.R.I.B.E. The conceptual framework took the form of the accademic text ‘The Hypermobile Icarus’. In June 2011 they organized the Transitory Network Forum in Saloon of Contemporary Art in Belgrade where the network was presented. The Transitory Network has developed now into T.R.I.B.E.

T.R.I.B.E. is a platform established to connect media-labs and artist-in-residency spaces in East Europe and the Balkans. All organizations involved are specific to their local context and are making the first steps to build AIR programs for production and research for experimental, digital and research art. The network encourages exchange between these places as well as production and touring of international transitory artworks. All believe in building the infrastructure for artistic research, production and representation with the purpose to revitalize the either closed or just unfamiliar artistic scenes of the so called East.

T.R.I.B.E. was built in partnership with CIANT (Prague), ARTos Foundation (Nicosia), BIS – Body Arts Association (Istanbul), Treći Beograd (Beograd) and In Situ Modern Art Foundation (Warszaw).
