11. 05. 20233rd International Festival of Experimental Audiovisual Practices V-F-X Ljubljana

11 – 14 May 2023
Slovenian Cinematheque, SCCA Project Room

Four festival days challenge the horizon of the domesticated gaze: with the filmmaker in focus, the experimental animator Gudrun Krebitz, we will explore the polyphonic layering of intimate cinematic landscapes; we will get to know the blazing Pan-American experimental production through two programmes selected by the guest curator Jean-Jacques Martinod, while this year’s new section Vistas brings together what the programme team has gleaned from the wide field of current practices. With the New Light programme we would like to emphasise the significance of preserving Slovenian heritage, but we at the same time also unreservedly think about the future: during the festival, the interactive VR installation Journey Into the Universe of Consciousness will test the limits of the gaze. In addition to Neža Knez’s workshop and exhibition, the Czech artist Jan Kulka will provide a fitting closing of the festival with his AV performance. Vive le expérimental!

3. 04. 2023Kindly Not Invited

Miha Vipotnik, Space 2, 1986

Group exhibition at Kino Šiška Urban Culture Center (3–18 April 2023) was curated by Varja Močnik.
History teaches that experimental film is intended only for a narrow circle of the public. Is the (difficult) accessibility of this type of content an issue of physical display spaces or curation environments? Perhaps of limited and at the same time overcrowded spiritual contexts? Such questions will only be deepened by the exhibition of experimental audiovisual works by Slovenian authors. And multiplied.
Group exhibition at Kino Šiška (3 – 18 April 2023) is curated by Varja Močnik.
Participating: Nika Autor, Sara Bezovšek, Ana Čigon, Jasna Hribernik, Marko A. Kovačič, Damijan Kracina, Andrej Lupinc, Kolja Saksida, Rok Sieberer – Kuri, Miha Vipotnik.
