Noumenart (from Greek νοούμενον - essence comprehended by the mind) - the art of creating new meanings, the play of thought through artistic expression and the disclosure of the mind through the medium of art. The noumenographer is neither an artist nor a philosopher; rather, they use philosophical methods to capture new meanings and employ artistic techniques to give them tangible form. By evoking emotion, they discover new eidos (forms or ideas), offering themselves and others the pleasure of experiencing previously unknown meanings on an emotional level.
The NOUMEN ART Creative Lab hosts annual public sessions and festivals that include a variety of cultural events celebrating the work of talented and innovative contemporary artists in a variety of disciplines. These include music, visual arts, performing arts, screen arts, and a synthesis of art, literature and poetry that draws inspiration from regional and ethnic artistic traditions. The NOUMEN ART Festival, formerly known as the Festival of Contemporary Intellectual Art, has been held since 2005. The XI International Noumen ART Festival was held in August 2022 in Osttirol, Austria.
As part of the Noumen ART Fest, hosts international events in Tbilisi, Georgia, such as:
