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.
We have joined the traditional Museum Summer Night (18 June 2016) with a two-hour screening program entitled Feedback Loop 2 at Ljubljana Museum Square (Facade +MSUM) in Ljubljana. The video program Feedback Loop 2 curated by Ida Hiršenfelder presents the part of video archive which is extremely important for understanding video art and its social impact, but remains almost entirely unnoticed and non-representational. Presented video works extend from 1975 to 2009 and include artists Maja Smrekar, Neven Korda/Borghesia, Luka Dekleva, Rok Sieberer – Kuri, Tanja Vujinović, Miha Vipotnik and Luka Prinčič. more
Barbara Borčić participated at international symposium in Paris: The Emergence of Video Art in Europe: history, theory, sources and archives in Bibliothèque nationale de France and INHA – Institut national d’histoire de l’art , 25 & 26 May 2016. The goal of the symposium with speakers from different European countries was to present an alternative to the dominant narrative of video art history in which American art is given the most attention.
During the exhibition in Vžigalica Gallery the interviews with artists on the topic of the presented video works have been made by curator Nika Grabar. Two of them have been published on DIVA so far: Neven Korda on video Discipline and Marko Peljhan on video The Parc of Culture. A very informative reading on the conceptual and contextual background of video production.
