Race with Time

The exhibition Race with Time. Performance in a Rear-view Mirror, curated by Barbara Borčić, demonstrated the relationship between performance art and video art that could be schematically demonstrated by four modes: 1) video as a document of performance, 2) video as a part of performance / performance as a part of video, 3) (video) performance, staged only for the camera, and 4) performance made possible only through video, its expressive and technological possibilities for processing and editing.

Production: SCCA-Ljubljana, 2014

12. 11. 2013Barbara Borčić: Ljubljana Alternative Scene

Presentation & screening

Thursday, November 14, at 7 pm
Künstlerhaus. Halle für Kunst & Medien, Graz

In frame of the exhibition … Was ist Kunst? … Resuming Fragmented Histories, Sept. 22– Nov. 21, 2013

Ljubljana Alternative Scene

The presentation will focus on the cultural/artistic practices of the Ljubljana Alternative Scene in the eighties, a conglomerate of artistic and cultural protagonists and new social and theoretical movements (peace, ecologist, feminist, gay and lesbian; New Left, Post-Structuralism and Lacanianism) which eventually constituted a civil society. While video and multimedia practices formed its constitutive part as well as its (media) effect, the Škuc Gallery as an important protagonist of the scene introduced the concept of expanded visual arts and was actually the space where Raša Todosijević presented his work/poster Was ist Kunst (Marinela Koželj) in 1981 and produced a strong impact on Slovene artists and their artistic practices.

Video Program Constants and Continuities

For MKC Koper Youth and Culture Centre SCCA-Ljubljana prepared a new video program curated by Andrej Pezelj.

With this programme we would like to show as heteroclite video selection as possible in order to show that many videos from the 80s had dealt with the topics that are much similar to what we are dealing now. People were fighting against ecological challenges, facing housing dilemmas; they also found some time to think about fashion or about the production of beautiful video works.
