DIVA Through Summer - 19. Sep. 2016

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.
