One form of existence of the gallery 0gms is as a gallery in a drawer following an idea of the artist Ivan Moudov. In May 2010 opened the first 0gms gallery in one of the drawers in the kitchen of the Institute of Contemporary Art, Sofia. Shortly after that 0gms appeared in a drawer in the shop of Cabaret Voltaire, Zürich, and also in the frames of different events and exhibitions in Vienna, Nagoya, Jakarta, Rotterdam etc.
