Jasna Hribernik - Carte Postale (0:06:10)
Production: TV Slovenija, 1997
By layering of pictures the artist succeded in simultaneously presenting the past and the present. Destruction of a house represents the present, and fragments from letters written by people who used to live in the house represent the past. An off-screen voice reads the letters, but the sounds soon become unintelligible - for who gives us the right to rummage through the intimacies of these anonymous people? Anonymous they shall remain. For a moment we even see their faces in photographs, but these photogra...Add to playlist

Marko Kovačič - Naprej v preteklost / Forth Into the Past (0:09:30)
Production: Forum Ljubljana, VPK, 1995
The video deals with our understanding of the distant future, presented through a concrete example of the 23rd century archaeology. A narration of a professor archaeologist leads us through the story as he guides his student through one of the main archaeological sites in the City of Catastropolis, where so-called Plastoses, who (will) survived the atomic catastrophe live. These half-organic half-mechanical creatures form a comprehensive civilisation of Plastos, which is the author's subject in a series of...Add to playlist

Video work tells a story of an art collector as remembered by herself in her old age, and as narrated by her friend, a psychoanalyst. Thru this narrative the authors deal with the spirit of avant-garde art in the first half of the 20th century. By layering black and white and colour images and sounds the work creates a deep and lively emotional space. (Source: Videodokument)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

Nataša Prosenc Stearns - Ne poznaješ me (00:04:56)
Production: TV Sarajevo, 1989
The dance-floor and dancer are symbols of two worlds and generations placed in opposition. The division is defined by music and chromatic contrasts. The dancer first dances a waltz, but this later changes to rock'n'roll. The video is enhanced by drawings, which impart to the image an impression of multiple layers. (VD)Add to playlist

The video starts with a graphic sign from which emerge images, and this procedure points to the fact that any documentary is but an artefact. The narrator searches through documents and reconstructs the life of Lela: in the Middle Ages she was accused of witchcraft; in the 20th century she finds herself in the midst of war, in the future she will leave the planet. Lela's individual destiny is being inscribed into the fate of humanity by means of layering the image; only television shots of the war in former...Add to playlist

Two dancers, a man and a woman, present different human positions and movements in the space, and thus represent different times and spaces. The repetitive scenes of people walking around indicate the passage of time, while the fixed structure of the staircase delienates permanency.(source: Videodokument)Add to playlist

Production: Zavod ZANK / koprodukcija RTV Slovenija, 2004
Short film explores modalities of time and connects them to different basic mental states of a human being. Peaceful and slow action in the garden, which we see in the beginning of the film is replaced by first melancholic and then hysteric scenes inside an apartment. Video thus deals with distress of a modern human being.Add to playlist

Zoran Srdić Janežič - Trash Robots (00:01:56)
Production: Zavod za sodobne umetnosti in kulture Gulag, 2010
Pri video gre za združitev dveh tipov podob. Prvi sloj je analogen, arhivski in prikazuje različne interakcije robotov in ljudi. Zgornji sloj je nekakšen avtorjev odgovor, remake na arhivske posnetke. Avtorjev poseg v črno-belo sliko je zelo enostaven in poskuša vspostaviti kontrast v obliki in barvi. Barvni roboti poskušajo brez uspeha ustvariti dialog s spodnjo črno-belo podlago. Ta neuspeh lahko beremo kot parodijo na človekovo zaslepljenost s strojem.Add to playlist

Production: SCCA-Ljubljana, 2011
Through our conversations with the protagonists of the art scene in Ljubljana, who belong to different generations and expressive currents, we wanted to confront views and memories while considering the tectonic shifts in the fine art field in the last thirty years that accompanied the social transformation in this region.[From: From Consideration to Commitment: Art in Critical Confrontation to Society, on-line publication https://talkingcriticarts.wordpress.com/, Belgrade, Ljubljana, Skopje, Zagreb: 1990-2...
