Historical Memory, Newspaper’s Third Dimension

Exhibition marking the 60th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy
Author: Ali Žerdin

John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, was assassinated 60 years ago, on 22 November 1963, in Dallas. Appearing on all TV channels and delivering eloquent speeches, Kennedy was a president whose life was front-page news, whose words went down in history as famous quotes. An icon, a mythical figure, a physically weak man of athletic appearance, a powerful, promiscuous man giving an impression of a modest family man.

The newspaper copies kept by the Museum of Press present his dazzling public image. JFK’s assassination was a global media sensation - like the Moon landing.

Together... The Slovenian Territorial Defence and Militia Defended the Referendum Decision to Establish an Independent Slovenia

Photo exhibition of the Military Museum of Slovenian Armed Forces and the Slovenian Police Museum

Razstava skozi fotografski objektiv prikazuje in obiskovalcu ponuja vpogled v bojne aktivnosti pripadnikov slovenske teritorialne obrambe in milice med ključnimi trenutki na poti do uresničitve dolgo pričakovane samostojnosti naše države.

Na ogled danih 49 fotografij poskrbi za popotovanje skozi trenutke zgodovine, ki razkrivajo pogum, odločnost, vztrajnost in zavzetost tistih, ki so dokazali, da je slovenski narod tudi nepopustljiv in trdoživ. 

Različni fotografi, profesionalni in amaterski, ki so prispevali fotografije za razstavo, s tem omogočajo, da njihove vsebine postajajo del zgodovine in tako večnosti. In ob enem prebujajo spomine na obdobje slovenskega osamosvajanja ter so hkrati opomin, da vojna ne sme postati stanje duha.

DALJNOGLED 2022 (ForwardVision)

Design Identity – Daljnogled (ForwardVision) Series

Design Manca Udovič
Daljnogled 2022 Award
In cooperation with the Designers Society of Slovenia.

We imagine the future as a world abounding in technology, robots and, consequently, geometric elements that convey an impression of being uncomfortable. But what if that's not the case? What if it’s all an illusion? The “Illusion of a Soft Future” collection is a new version of elegant pleats combined with a smooth, compact material in warm shades. The cold-grey hemming tape, wound softly between the materials, creates an illusion of a comfortable technological future.


Jury statement
The elegant women's clothing collection constitutes a well-considered fusion of elements of architecture and fashion design. The complex and carefully tailored clothing features an intertwinement of curved, soft lines of the compact polyester fabric and the unobtrusively rigorous, straight lines of pleats. The collection has been designed with a sophisticated flair for elegance, detail and coherence, and with a great deal of patience, clarity and determination. The felicitous artistic articulation of the vision of a robotized and technicised future, where strict geometric elements are "softened" into comfortable wearability, testify to the artist’s feel for contemporary fashion design and at the same time a palpable sense of originality.

Towards a Humane Technology

Showcase exhibition of the Network of Art and Cultural Research Centers
Cankarjev dom, First Foyer and Štih Hall

Showcase exhibition of the Network of Art and Cultural Research Centers- RUK, which consists of Delavski dom Trbovlje (Trbovlje), ACE KIBLA (Maribor) and PiNA (Koper). 

After three years of interdisciplinary development, bringing together various stakeholders and pushing the boundaries in the fields of augmented reality technologies, robotics and artificial intelligence, digitization and digitization of cultural heritage, ecology, and sustainable development, innovative and visionary pilot projects, products, artworks, festivals, and educational programmes will be presented. We will connect and present several creative areas, methodological approaches, and production contexts through the displayed projects, in which we will try to introduce new technologies into the basic postulates of the modern society of the twenty-first century according to the principle of technology humanization. 
Confronting the works that emerge from the postulates of consideration and reflection, openness and cooperation, mutual reciprocity, ideas and action were the ideas of only pushing to assemble the parts into a coherent community and opening spaces for the realisation of projects with knowledge and behaviour, ingenuity, research, and experiments as artistic elements.
What we have implemented and put into practice reflects our perception of technology's humanization. Even our current work and future plans continue the design of the Network of Art and Cultural Research Centre - RUK at the intersection of modern technologies, science, and economy as an interdisciplinary hub for the development of innovative products and services for the future soft and humane technology. The integration of art and culture into scientific and technological research, development and innovation, digitization, entrepreneurship, training and education with an emphasis on the humanities and social sciences, ecology, circular economy, and sustainable development is also an incentive for Slovenia to be more equal regionally, as it contributes to the even development of regions as well as the three fundamental pillars of the development strategy: digital development, circular economy and Industry 4.0.

Student Corner

The Telescope Series
V sodelovanju z Društvom oblikovalcev Slovenije

In the past academic year, six individual seating units from mainly secondary materials were created as an initiative and joint project of postgraduate industrial design students of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. The product has been designed in a way to allow for sustained maintenance and replacement of worn-out parts. The corner affords students a place to withdraw to and study in a room allocated for proofreading and lectures. The units are movable and allow for any type of configuration for group or individual use. At mid-term exhibitions, the exterior walls serve as flexible exhibition areas for posters.

The project is the result of the efforts to use organic materials or materials of secondary origin.
 
Felt is the production residue of the company Filc d.o.o.
Textile waste (approx. 13 kg/unit) is used as wall soundproofing material and has been sourced by the Dravograd Organic Cooperative.
Cardboard tubes are scrap materials of the Lokatex company.
 
We would like to express our gratitude for their support to the following companies:
DS Smith d.o.o.
Donar d.o.o.
Fintex d.o.o.

PIA ŠILEC: TROPICAL DIVERSITY

Design Identity - Binoculars Series
In cooperation with the Slovenian Designers' Association

Design student Pia Šilec presents a fashion collection created in the academic year 2020/21 within the framework of her undergraduate studies of fashion and textiles under Assoc. Prof. Matea Benedetti at the Faculty of Design.

With her collection, the designer seeks to demonstrate the organicity of nature. Her design concept rests on natural lines defined by the dividing shades of earthly colours. The collection is based on oversized tailoring inspired by men's clothing. The garments feature large-scale asymmetric organic lines that add an appealing, unique and feminine aspect to the collection.

Each model of the clothing line expresses the diversity and individuality of nature, the inspiration of an organic lifestyle that is gaining in importance and attracting more and more attention.

The designer succeeded in reconciling innovative tailoring, suitable materials and colours with the spirit of the time, thus exhibiting her own creativity and response to the emerging challenges of modern society.

The Designers Society of Slovenia is presenting innovative projects of young designers. Various young creators will be featured individually throughout the year.

Skin

International photography exhibition
Goran Bertok, Ewa Doroszenko, Görkem Ergün, Karina-Sirkku Kurz, Anne Noble, Špela Šivic

Public guided tour of the Koža/Skin International Photography Exhibition will be conducted by curators Kristina Ferk and Nataša Ilec Kralj on Thursday, 3 March, and Thursday, 10 March, at 6 p.m. in CD's Foyer I. 

Skin – organ, boundary, shield, medium, metaphor. This permeable surface stands as a barrier to the “outer” world, an observable texture of our public persona, and at the same time a safeguard for our perceptual inner self that mediates and constructs our environment. Carved by the space and time, the skin is a (living) tissue, shaped by the chisel of time inscribing on it the contours of an individual's autobiography. It is carnal, intimate, personal, always aware. It belongs to the senses and at the same time it is alienated, libidinous, even uncanny – it belongs to us, others... everyone – but at the same time, to no one at all. Skin is a part of a wider social tissue, framed by the gaze of others, seemingly animated by its own spirit. It is a membrane of the world and every individual – it equally radiates and inscribes identity.

The exhibition Skin unveils different photographic practices, touching the topic of skin, be it gently or roughly, from its superficial mindfulness, its microscopic structures, to its social embodiment – in the economy of the gaze, it oscillates between the desired and demanded, exposing physicality, the relations between the real and the created, between immersion and deconstruction. As does photography.

Exhibition marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of Fyodor M. Dostoyevsky

Reflections of Dostoyevsky, an intrepid explorer of the darkest recesses of the human mind and one of the greatest influencers of all time, are found in a selection of Beletrina’s published authors through diary entries, memoires, and allusions.
The exhibition, featuring new original portraits by photographer Mankica Kranjec, an overview of the writer’s body of work and minute details that bring to light his intimate essence, is a digital and analogous showcase of featured authors that blends their reflections of Dostoyevsky into a complex whole, thereby also marking the 25th anniversary of the Publishing House Beletrina.

The interactive exhibition is accessible to everyone and aimed at visitors aged 13+.

Visitors are encouraged to post their comments and contributions on FB and IG.

WIDOWS AND AN ORPHAN, discussion and guided tour of the exhibition

The talk will be accompanied by a guided tour of the exhibition.

The exhibition Widows and an Orphan that had filled the empty halls of Cankarjev Dom throughout the epidemic, resonates with the message that design is capable of solving myriad issues. When its authors got back to work after the cancelled opening event, each one of them in their line of work faced the various challenges, brought about by the new and pressing realities. The insights they have gained in the fields of culture, business and healthcare will be explored in a discussion, in which they will draw attention to the key notion of including designers in the working processes of various professions that can use their experience and advice to better prepare for the times ahead.

Izbor: Iza Pevec

Glave, ki jih je začel upodabljati v osemdesetih, se razkrajajo v poudarjeno linijo, ki se začenja in zgosti v točki desnega očesa. Lahko poznejše psihograme razumemo kot zgoščeni ekvivalent tej odločilni gesti prvih zarisov v površino? Ali pa kot serijo minimalnih izrazov impulza, s katerim se začne neko delo in iz praznine nastaja nekaj? Njihova serialnost asociira na nenehno začenjanje, nenehno iskanje smisla in vztrajanje, beleženje prezence, ki se skoraj vedno prikaže na naslednji zaplati bele nalepke. Ta drobna, ponavljajoča se ekspresivnost vzpostavlja na videz paradoksalno napetost Mršnikovih del – ekspresija ostaja »ujeta« v sistem pravokotnikov in nadaljevanja, ki to ekspresijo še poudari. Med konceptualnim, bolj idejnim pristopom in likovno ekspresijo umetnikove poteze torej ni nujno velikega prepada.

Ivo Mršnik, rojen leta 1939, je leta 1968 diplomiral na oddelku za slikarstvo Akademije za likovno umetnost v Ljubljani. Istega leta se je zaposlil kot likovni pedagog na Osnovni šoli Vič v Ljubljani, hkrati pa do 1970 nadaljeval študij slikarske spe­cialke pri prof. Maksimu Sedeju. Zatem je nadaljeval tudi študij grafične specialke pri prof. Riku Debenjaku in prof. Marjanu Pogačniku. Na grafični specialki je diplomiral leta 1972, na slikarski pa 1975 pri prof. Gabrijelu Stupici. Od leta 1978 je bil zaposlen na Pedagoški fakulteti v Ljubl­jani, od 1998 kot redni profesor za risanje in grafiko z metodiko. 1. oktobra 2005 se je upokojil. Decembra 2011 mu je Univerza v Ljubljani podelila naziv zaslužni profesor. Med pomembnejša priznanja, ki jih je prejel za svoje delo, sodi tudi nagrada Ivane Kobilca za življenjsko delo, ki mu jo je leta 2018 podelilo Društvo likovnih umetnikov Ljubljana.

 

Iza Pevec, rojena leta 1987, je končala študij umetnostne zgodovine in primerjalne književnosti ter je samozaposlena v kulturi. Občasno pripravlja razstave, predvsem pa piše o umetnosti in kulturi. Bila je sodelavka Radia Študent, od leta 2014 je sodelavka Radia Slovenija – programa Ars, sodeluje tudi z revijo Fotografija. Končala je tudi dvoletni program Šole za kuratorske prakse in kritiško pisanje v okviru SCCA Ljubljana.
