The digital sourcebook organises an evolving repository of materials that have been accumulated since the conception of Motions of this Kind (MoTK) in 2018. It presents concepts, histories, literatures and references that bind the Asian and UK contexts. 
MoTK is a long-term initiative that explores contemporary art practices from the Philippines and the UK through residencies, research, conversations and exhibitions.
