Neven Korda is an artist who has contributed significantly to developing video as a new medium. He creatively expressed himself through various periods, experimenting with the expressive possibilities of media that produced video.
The programme Unknown Land I: FV is eclectic, featuring 1980s and early 1990s material. The films presented in this programme tend towards the documentary form, recording the scene of the FV conglomerate and relating to the end of the shared state in the context of the emerging alternative television A-TV.

Screening and talk on Thursday, 7 September 2023, 8 pm at the inner courtyard of Škuc Gallery, Ljubljana.
“I chose works that remind me of the past. Thematically and/or aesthetically. It’s a difficult feeling to explain, and I don’t know what exactly in the works evokes it. Maybe the colours, the sound, the story … A certain nostalgia creeps in, quite randomly and inexplicably, as if I were a joyful 13-year-old again. It is this carefree, relaxed and humorous quality that the selected works evoke in me. They surprise and make me smile again and again; they calm me down in tense times and remind me of better days. Perhaps time is not so fleeting after all.” – Vita Weisseisen
