The DIVA News page refers to public presentations, exhibitions, screenings, publications in Slovenia and on the international scene, connected to participations of DIVA Station Video Archive and the video artists who had contributed their video artworks to the archive. We also introduce events organised by DIVA Station (SCCA-Ljubljana) in order to promote its content and usage.

Behind us is the successful opening of the program and exhibition of Miha Vipotnik, the pioneer of experimental video art and multimedia practice. His film / video opus entitled Faces of Analogue / Quantisation of Red will continue to be shown once a month until June.

Shortly after the New Year, the Transgression exhibition inhabited the Kino Šiška entrance hall on the ground floor and first floor (10-28 January 2020). A group exhibition of video works from the archive DIVA Station presented ten video works from 1985 to 2019. Despite the demanding large spaces, the layout of the exhibition curated by Vesna Bukovec and Peter Cerovšek was very successful. (photo: Kaja Brezočnik)

We participated at the International Alternative Film / Video Festival in Belgrade. The program "Welcome to the 8-minute Autumnal Picnic in the Past" curated by Barbara Borčić and Peter Cerovšek was well received, and interest in films was high. We also participated in talks on this year's topic "Great Acceleration."

Every year, the DIVA Station / SCCA-Ljubljana marks the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage at the Slovenian Cinematheque, thus highlighting the importance of AV archives and presenting examples of good international practice. This year we hosted the Berlin n.b.k. Video Forum. Kathrin Becker, its director has prepared From Found Footage to Re-enactment, a one-hour program of six video works, each addressing in its way different aspects of AV heritage and its appropriation. more


DIVA has collaborated with the City of Women International Festival of Contemporary Arts on several occasions. This time, on its 25th edition, our archive facilitated a group exhibition entitled Cheers to Women! 25 years of film and video (Alkatraz Gallery, AKC Metelkova, Ljubljana, 24. 9.–7. 10. 2019). Namely, in their search for the woman authors, the curators, Vesna Bukovec and Ana Cigon, analysed the video archive DIVA Station and looked through the former editions of the City of Women festival. At the opening, Ana Čigon managed a performance that staged exhibited works and strengthened the reception of the audience.  More

Two years ago, she presented a modern Taiwanese video, now she selected eleven works that reflect the period of communism and socialism in the countries of the Western Balkans, Eastern Europe, and Russia. Soon after, she presented this program in the form of an exhibition in the Easttopics gallery in Budapest. more

We are pleased that every year, DIVA Station Archive attracts guest curators, theoreticians and artists. They are researching video art and, on the basis of this material and their preferences and topics, they also prepare a curated program, theoretical lecture or artistic performance. This year, this was the Polish curator Lawinia Rate, who introduced the video program In Praise of Dreams. Video-art from the 90s (Project Room SCCA, Ljubljana, 29 May 2019). more

In the last two months, we upgraded the DIVA Station's online archive and made it more user-friendly. Together with Borut Savski, DIVA's web programmer, we updated the content input interface, upgraded the video player, and customized the page to be displayed on mobile devices. We've made it easier to use the menu and raise the keyword references. Now the archive is airy and clear and ready for your new work.
We invite authors to visit SCCA-Ljubljana and bring us their videos or short films. You can also write to us at
