Artists

The material archives/the media library of SCCA-Ljubljana holds some 1,000 video works, documents and audio-visual resources. The archives also include selections made by curators, television programmes and works by foreign artists, but these are not subject to scientific examination and presentation. The archiving system is based on geographic, thematic, media and other criteria. We decided to systematically collect and present materials by artists who work in the area of Slovenia or are somehow differently connected to the Slovenian cultural area for two reasons. Firstly, the geographical restriction enables direct contact and a manageable quantity of material, given the capacities of the institution. Secondly, and even more importantly, the systematic collection, study, examination, digitalisation and access to artistic video works and audio-visual material from this part of the world are not exclusively included in other Slovenian or international archives – therefore, we have an even more responsible role. This database, which is supported by the DIVA Station physical and digital video archives is an important and precious part of cultural heritage. Works by individual artists are not selected according to any special criteria, as we seek to create a comprehensive body of works. Artists are invited to participate when they are recognised locally or internationally, and we continue to closely follow less established and emerging artists when we recognise continuity in the quality of their work. With every artist or collective, the number of works published on DIVA Station and available to the general public is given. If the number is zero, this means that works can be viewed only in the media library.
