Biography
Alenka Pirman graduated in 1989 from the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana. During 1991–1992 she was editor-in-chief of the magazines Likovne besede and M'zin, during 1990–1996 she was artistic director of the Škuc Gallery, and during 1997–1999 she was assistant director of the Soros Center for Contemporary Arts – Ljubljana, vice president of the Board of Directors of the International Contemporary Art Network (ICAN) (1999) and the co-founder and mentor (1996–1998) of the World of Art educational programme for contemporary art curators. From 2001 to 2004 she was editor and head of the Artservis web-based resource (SCCA–Ljubljana), and she was a taxi driver (2003, 2007–2008). Since 2009 she has worked as a co-editor of the Culture.si and Kulturnik.si web portals at Ljudmila, Art and Science Laboratory in Ljubljana.
In the 1990s, her work was predominantly related to three fictitious institutions: the SK8 Museum (1991-93), the RIGUSRS - Research Institute for Geo Art Statistics of the Republic of Slovenia (1997, with Vuk Ćosić and Irena Woelle), and the Domestic Research Institute (1994-98). She then collaborated with several artistic collectives/platforms, including Luther Blissett/01.org (1998) and Bughouse (2002-03). She has carried out several methodological exhibition projects, including working on a German loanword collection (Arcticae horulae, 1991-98) and on a deposited collection of the Police Museum (The Case. Art and Criminality, 2005, with Biserka Debeljak). She is a founding member of the Domestic Research Society (2004), where she develops collaborative exhibition and web projects (The Cabinet, 2005-; Unleashed Tongue, 2004-; Indija.si, 2007-).
