SYNOPSIS

The Alternative is Hard to See


In America, we don’t have alternative culture. Instead, our transgressive and progressive movements – namely counter-culture and underground culture – exist in relation to the dominant culture they rebel against. Their forms are forever shaped by the very thing they work to oppose and subvert. Unlike its American counterpoint, Slovenian alternative culture avoids such trappings.


Existing simultaneously within and outside of dominant culture, alternative culture complicates these relationships. Bubbling with mutant ruptures, it is amorphic, ever-shifting, and ungovernable. It is a place where the boundaries that define culture are unmoored and break down. In the resulting fissures new spaces, forms, and paths appear.


Gathered together, this selection of works loosely traces a trajectory of alternatives found within the DIVA archive. Whether documents of Radio Študent and Klub Tiffany, experiments in form, or ecstatic celebrations, these works collectively construct a history of alternative paths, positions, and spaces. Taken together, they make visible the radical potential alternatives have for instigating change – of both the personal and public varieties.


Like Slovenian culture itself, the subtle power of the alternative lies in its ability to stand apart. It is an unquietly powerful vantage point that reveals new languages and new visions with which transformative potential can be realized. The alternative to our past, present, and future continues to lurk all around us. The only question that remains is if we want to see it. (Source: Jake Yuzna)
