Marko Kovačič - No More Heroes Any More (0:18:15)
Production: V.S. VIDEO/Forum Ljubljana, 1992
Video deals with the theme of war in a parodic and grotesque manner. With Chroma key procedure the two main protagonists or shall we say antagonists - evil and conniving political leaders are set inside a TV studio, where so called Royal game takes place. War battle metaphorically packed as a twisted game of chess, which sees real people as toys in the hands of malicious and greedy politics, is getting more and more insane and uncontrollable. Performative character of the video allows the actors to exagge...Add to playlist

Ema Kugler - Menhir (00:35:16)
Production: Forum Ljubljana, VPK & TV Slovenija, 1999
Urbanity is finally erased with mythological rituals, which is defined by the title of the video film: menhir, a large upright standing stone from the Neolithic Period which was used in sacred rituals. A man and a woman are Adam and Eve who are formed before us with electronic transformation (morphing) and are marked by blood, which also marks all the other elements of the video image: murder of an individual committed by a menhir or the trinity (politics, church, army), bodies of dancers. Blood, murder a...Add to playlist

Ema Kugler - Homo Erectus (00:43:28)
Production: ZANK, 2000
This video features no words, only music and images. Ema Kugler describes the moving images as: “They are like a dark, surrealist dance of everyman with his own death. I have seen all these images. They came from the darkness of my subconsciousness, colonized me and obsessed me.” (Slovenian Film Fund) The video shows images, which together with the accompanying music give an impression of the infinite and the divine and being sucked into an abyss from where there is no return. The images bring us to...Add to playlist

Marko Peljhan - The Park of Culture (TV situation) (00:07:44)
Subtitle: part of Media in Media exhibition
Production: Projekt Atol, SCCA-Ljubljana, VPK, 1996
If television bombards us with information, then this TV situation explicitly shows it. Images of earths' surface and human, especially technological activities on it are described in double captions, which look like stock quotes and differ in language (English and Slovene) and speed. The first line is describing, the second is explaining. The TV situation can be understood as a cradle for somebody discovering the world. The textual material is the translation of Sun Tzu's The Art of War and the compendium...Add to playlist

Nataša Prosenc Stearns - One Way (00:05:31)
Production: TV Slovenija, 1995
A man and a woman aim to fulfil their desire for power, beauty, supremacy and other similar human attributes. The male and the female are represented through archetypal images: a strong man's body fighting against the crude force of nature, and a woman's body and its clothing reflected in a mirror. The video image presents these archetypes in duplicate, in slow-motion and replication, and thus it assembles the collective visual memory of human inclinations.Add to playlist

Video performance captures a modestly furnished space inside which performers move. Shots are static and unedited. One after another or polyphonically performers repeat the conjugation of the sentence "I am the centre". They use different technical accessories as for example microphone or megaphone.

Production: Duba Sambolec, 1999
In a video performance lasting for 120 minutes the author with blinded eyes and heavy luggage staggers in front of a big projection following a rail. She is guided by a strict, ordering and violet male voice, which wants to make her get out of the screen, of the visual field and metaphorically out of public life. The movement on the tracks occasionally turns, the train goes backwards in its own path. The movement of the train is edited, usually with the transition from the darkness.

Goran Devide - Sovražnik (0:04:28)
Production: Škuc-Forum, FV video, 1984
Computer animation is a music video for a song by group Borghesia. The author uses formally simple animation, which due to light line on a blue surface, creates an illusion of depth. Strong contrast functions aggressively. Animated anthropomorphic figures move together and one against the other, but there is always tension between them. The animation is author's interpretation of estranged and shallow civilization. ------- Borghesia (1983 - 1939) was a multimedia group (concert performance, video works,...Add to playlist

Nika Oblak & Primož Novak - Recommended by Curators Worldwide (0:08:26)
Production: European Commission Culture Programme for EMARE 2009, 2009
A 3 by 5 meters advertising billboard promoting Nika Oblak & Primož Novak is placed deep in the woods in north Wales. The billboard is placed in a spot where it can hardly be seen, like a tree falling in a forest with no one around to hear it fall. Placed in a surrounding where it is likely not to be seen by anyone evokes questions to its purpose of being there. Additionally, use of an appropriated advertising line 'Nika Oblak & Primož Novak - recommended by curators worldwide’ is Oblak & Novak's self i...Add to playlist

Video je del petkanalne video instalacije, ki prikazuje pet video performansov na obali. Avtorica, oblečena v črno, izbere različna mesta ob morju, kjer se postavi v določeno pozo in ostane negibna skozi cel prizor. Ta avtoričina negibnost animira ozadje, kjer gledalec opaža tudi najmanjše premike in detajle. Oddaljeni dogodki na horizontu postanejo središče dogajanja, črna figura avtorice pa se zreducira na obris, nekakšno luknjo sredi kompozicije, ki je ključ za vstop v ozadje.Add to playlist
