DIVA Station is a material and on-line archive of video and new-media art developed by Center for Contemporary Arts, SCCA-Ljubljana since 2005. DIVA is presenting local video art production (art video, video documentation of art events, video documentation of theoretical discussions) in order to provide reaserch materials for curators, artists, theorists, and wider interested public.
DIVA Station is present at the Guerilla Girls exhibition in the Whitechapel Gallery (1 October 2016 – 5 March 2017). Namely, SCCA-Ljubljana has participated at the research by this group of anonymous, feminist activists that explored diversity in European art organisations. The exhibition Is it even worse in Europe? presents responses to questionnaires sent to 383 European museums and galleries. In their respond to our reply »We don’t have a collection, but we have a video archive DIVA Station that includes 54% of women artists«, Guerilla Girls comment: Always room for DIVAS! more
During summer months we were occupied mainly with upgrading and updating the oeuvre of artists actively present on international arena for more decades. Apart from video works by Neven Korda and his series New New Films, we devoted our attention to Nataša Prosenc Stearns to complete the selection of her video works on DIVA. We are also glad to be able to publish an excellent document that Ana Čigon made based on her performance Ana at the Station staged at Project Room SCCA last autumn.
During summer the work at DIVA Station has been quite intesive. Now, we can proudly express our content on sucessfully upgrading and updating the NNF series by Neven Korda. New New Films were made between 2001 and 2007 and consist of twelve videos. They are in-between reports by Neven Korda from his renewed reading of the 1960s. They were presented at the Škratov Garden, The Autonomous Cultural Centre Metelkova mesto, Ljubljana.
