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.

Presentation, workshop, exhibition and projection on media facade, Oct. 30 – Nov. 10, 2014
The collaborators of DIVA Station (SCCA-Ljubljana) Barbara Borčić, Dušan Dovč, Ida Hiršenfelder and Nika Grabar will present the procedures of production, historisation and functioning of DIVA Station, the archive of video and media art in Slovenia. Two (Videospotting) video programmes will meet their premiere at Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb: Industrial Landscape curated by Miha Colner and Feedback Loop curated by Ida Hiršenfelder. 

S projekcijami in pogovorom smo v okviru programa Kino-integral v Slovenski kinoteki 23. junija predstavili omnibus kot posebno obliko filmske in video umetnosti, pri kateri na določeno temo ali zgodbo sodeluje več avtorjev oz. režiserjev. To obliko filmskega in video izražanja smo predstavili s tremi primeri oz. žanri: video art, igrani film in glasbeni video. 

The exhibition Race with Time. Performance and Video in a Rear-view Mirror shows various relations between the act of staging and the moving images: video action (N. and S. Dragan:Video Painting), studio shooting and art video (M. Vipotnik: Videogram 4), video performance (M. A. Kovačič: Casus belli; D. Sambolec: Collectors #3, *Settings*), action for camera (M. Bastarda, M. Ocepek, N. Skušek: Pissing), performance for camera (T. Furlan: Wear IV–VI; A. Čigon: One More Kick), urban choreography (M. Bučar: The Unnoticed). National Theatre Institute),  Ljubljana, 5.–16. 6. 2014.

Action, happening and performance had been a direct reaction to the prevailing formalist and market-driven art in the 1950s and 1960s. As the new means of expression at the intersection of visual art and theatre, they have somehow been pertinent to both fields; nonetheless, they have regularly been overlooked from the canonised history books and surveys.

In the context of Conceptual Art and New Artistic Practices, video art has met a similar reception. Apart from being a strongly individualistic activity, performance and video share various other features, such as inappropriate production conditions and lack of critical writing. It is also questionable whether they have found a pertinent field of representation, in the sense that the gallery is the field of representation of visual art, theatre of performing art, and the movie theatre that of film; while, television and the Internet seem to be the testing ground for all manners of production. It is also possible that performance and video mostly belong to the fields of other art forms, often overlapping and integrating other so-called new media.

The relationship between performance and video has always been multilayered and followed a preceding relation between film and action. It could be schematically demonstrated by four modes: 1) video as a document of performance, 2) video as a part of performance / performance as a part of video, 3) (video) performance, staged only for the camera, and 4) performance made possible only through video, its expressive and technological possibilities for processing and editing. more

Novi video program iz serije Videospotting - kuriranih preglednh in tematskih programov video umetnosti v slovenskem prostoru - je nastal na podlagi raziskovanja arhiva Postaja DIVA in se osredotoča na tematiko smrti.

The second of the lectures in collaboration between SCCA, Center for Contemporary Arts – Ljubljana and Nova Gorica City Gallery which are going to take place in the first half of 2014 as a part ofEncounters with Contemporary Visual Art Series is going to deal with projection as a medium and a building block of the experience of space in contemporary art entitled Endless Plane. The dimensions of video space and the art of projection.

The lecture “What Television Can Be, And What Artists Can Use It For?” has surveyed artistic practices that are essentially concerned with the relation to television. Barbara Borčić, the leader of DIVA Station archive at SCCA-Ljubljana, will present the variety of ways in which artists have responded to television in a variety of media, techniques, and means of expression, challenging or exposing its conventions, especially its mediation and manipulation, or undermining the established codes and structures entitled What Television Can Be, And What Artists Can Use It For?.

Intimising Dance is a video programme selected by Ida Hiršenfelder in the framework of Videospotting series of video art programmes. It has been screened as a part of TransDance 13 Festival (from 21st till 30th October, 2013) organised by HaRaKa Center in their newly opened exhibition space ODA in the centre of Cairo. (Picture: Neven Korda, Echoes, 2009)

Razstava, projekcija in pogovor o video in filmski produkciji zadnjih pet let. Leta 2006 je z naslovom Ameriške zgodbe postavila razstavo in predstavila svoja video dela in instalacije. Od takrat je naredila tudi že nekaj celovečernih filmov in bila pobudnica omnibusa Sokratova smrt, v katerem je sodelovalo 23 mednarodnih filmskih in video avtorjev.

The exhibition entitled Line Stroke the Letter is questioning the tension between the linguistic and pictorial poles that establishes the foundation for experimenting with and testing both the literary and the visual field. On Wednesday, September 25, a guided tour by Ida Hiršenfelder was followed by inspieringly sincretistic lecture performance by Dejan Habicht 12 Boring Poems.

Napetosti med jezikovnim in slikovnim omogočajo eksperimentiranje z literarnim in likovnim umetniškim izrazom. Dela na razstavi različnih žanrov (ilustracija, risba, stenska slika, tipografija, video, animacija, instalacija, elektronska knjiga, spletna umetnost) vzpostavljajo drugačne pristope k podobi in črki – tudi zato, da se v današnjem času tehnokratske rabe jezika spodbuja kritično »branje« likovnega ter »gledanje« literarnega in pripovednega. Na razstavi so predstavljena tudi nekatera video dela iz Postaje DIVA.
