Evenings of Intermedia Arts
Demonstration of physical and web archive of video art in Slovenia
Tuesday, January 11, at 6 pm
Trubar Literature House, Stritarjeva 7, Ljubljana
DIVA Station is starting with the series of demonstration in 2011 at the Trubar Literature House. Barbara Borčić in Ida Hiršenfelder, heads of the archive, will present the context and purpose of DIVA archive.
The presentation will be followed by the screening of the video essay Digital Video Archive (script, camera, editing, and text: Nika Grabar, 16 min, production: SCCA-Ljubljana, 2009). Video essay was produced in the framework of the study exhibition Diva at Škuc Gallery in 2009. The author says: “Archiving is really keeping some kind of memory alive. DIVA is trying to find memory for images and enable us to think the space of art. Without it we are caught in the image of a world that is reproducing us in a mechanical way.”
The event is part of the program Evenings of Intermedia Arts of the Municipality of Ljubljana, Department for Culture.
