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.
For the third time, the DIVA Station / SCCA-Ljubljana cooperated with the international short film festival FeKK. This time with a panel Production of Artificial Worlds (August 22, 2018) about VR and 360 ° movies and virtual reality, while visitors could also experience some VR film. With the exhibition Poetry Needs a Mirror in the Vodnikova domačija Gallery (30.8.-23.9. 2018) we focused on videopoetry. Curator Dušan Dovč chose works of extended poetic experience. more
We are particularly proud of some of the novelties in our archive. These are digital works that move in the inter-space between a short film and an art video. The dilemma about whether to speak about video art or short film seems unnecessary to younger generations, while for DIVA Station it is one of the main topics of the recent years. At DIVA on-line we have already published several such digital works of the younger generation, e.g. Coffee by Urška Djukić, Trails by Peter Cerovšek and Insider by Toni Poljanec.
In May and June, DIVA Station traveled a lot to different European cities. In Celje, participated at the exhibition Let’s Roll Our Sleeves Up! in Likovni salon Gallery, in Zagrebat the screening of The world is obliged to live you II., at the Multimedia Center and in Warsaw at the Revisiting Heritage conference at the National Museum.
