DIVA Station is a physical and web archive of video and new-media art which has been developing since 2005, and is also a broader compendium of SCCA projects that seek to research, present, document and archive video/new-media art.
The collecting of materials for DIVA Station is based on a documentary, archival and research project on video art in Slovenia Videodokument: Video Art in Slovenia 1969-1998, which was developed at SCCA-Ljubljana between 1994 and 1999, and was followed by numerous curatorial selections of the gathered material, introduced under the common title of Videospotting. There were also research and exhibition projects Archiving Practices and numerous consultations and talks with artists, curators and other experts and international collaborators.
High-resolution video archive works and selected literature on video and (new)media art are available to the public in SCCA library / Diva mediatheque.
