Los Angeles Filmforum, Picture More: Interventions into Filmic Space

20 - 26/10/2021
online screening

LA Filmforum

Films Screening Online October 20-26, 2021
Live Q&A with Filmmakers and Programmers on Sunday, October 24 at noon Pacific time
3 US premieres and 3 Los Angeles premieres!

Picture More: Interventions into Filmic Space,” programmed by guest curator Dana Berman Duff for Los Angeles Filmforum, presents film works that suggest dissatisfaction with the adequacy of the photographic medium to represent reality and which resort to interventions into the image to propose a more authentic experience. These films use added embellishments or layers, such as hand-drawn animation or special effects, treating the image as a space, rather than as a surface. These effects are in the film, not on the film; hence, they are a part of the story, rather than referencing the structure or the medium. Some of the interventions are hilarious, some are mystical or poetic, all are political.

MESTO ZGODB - Odprti atelje

From 6th to 19th of September 2021
V GLAVNEM, Glavni trg 4, Novo Mesto

Mesto zgodb

Kakšnim zgodbam daje prostor Novo mesto?
Kakšne zgodbe in vezi so se po znanih in skritih kotičkih mesta pletle včasih
in kje se bodo nove zgodbe pisale v prihodnosti?

V ponedeljek, 6. 9. 2021 se za javnost odpira nov prostor za kulturo in umetnost, nov prostor za druženje in razmislek, v glavnem pa prostor za nove zgodbe v centru Novega mesta. S tem namenom bomo skupaj z vabljenimi gosti, priznanimi novomeškimi kulturniki, misleci, arhitekti, ekonomisti … raziskali večplastnost »mestne krajine« in pomen ureditve ulic, parkov, mestnega jedra in nasploh arhitekture za življenje v mestu. 

Skozi fotografije, risbe, posnetke in pogovore bo projekt Odprti atelje: Mesto zgodb raziskoval, kaj je tisto bistveno, kar določen park ali zgradbo naredi prijeten in domač, zakaj se najraje zbiramo v določeni kavarni, ob določenem spomeniku ali klopci, katere urbane rešitve sprožajo živahno in družabno mestno življenje in kakšen prostor spodbuja naše kritično mišljenje in akcijo. Kako določene točke v mestu postanejo magnet za druženje za dogajanje in za družbeno aktivacijo in po drugi strani kaj je tisto, kar take prostore izbriše. 

Vabimo vas, da obiščete novi prostor V glavnem na Glavnem trgu 4. Prostor se otvarja z odprtim ateljejem vizualne umetnice Ane Čigon: Mesto zgodb. Ob obisku si boste lahko ogledali fotografije in risbe ter posnetke v nastajanju, ki bodo dokumentirale in raziskovale Novo mesto. Obiskovalke in obiskovalci so posebej lepo vabljeni k soustvarjanju Mesta zgodb, saj želimo izvedeti, kateri prostori v Novem mestu so za Novomeščane pomembni, prijetni in polni spominov ter kakšnih prostorov si želijo v prihodnosti. Vabljeni k razkrivanju mestne sedanjosti in preteklosti ter ustvarjanju vizij za prihodnost.

V ta namen bo od ponedeljka do petka med 6. in 19. septembrom med 17.00 in 20.00 uro odprti atelje gostil pogovore z izbranimi Novomeščani in Novomeščankami, ki se ga lahko udeležite ali si ogledate posnetek, hkrati pa je Atelje odprt tudi za Vas! Pridite se »družiti« in povedati svojo vizijo, svoj spomin, svojo zgodbo! V odprtem Ateljeju Vas čakava Ana in Andreja. Razpored vabljenih gostov objavimo v kratkem! 

Organizator dogodka: Ana Čigon in Andreja Kopač za kulturno-umetniški prostor V glavnem.
Projekt sofinancira: Ministrstvo za kulturo RS

The conference Not Yet Written Stories. Women Artists in Central and Eastern Europe

2-3 of September 2021
online

Not Yet Written

Not Yet Written Stories. Women Artists in Central and Eastern Europe, will be held on 2–3 September as an online event (on the Zoom platform). The conference is organised by the Arton Foundation (Warsaw), the Latvian Center for Contemporary Arts (Riga), SCCA-Ljubljana, Center for Contemporary Arts, (Ljubljana) and the Office for Photography (Zagreb). The scholarly sin of omission, and the exclusion of works by women from the canon of art history have resulted in the erasure of the achievements of numerous women artists. Such “amnesia” in history writing processes has been widespread and has been happening regardless of the socio-political situation.

The two-day conference will comprise seven panels devoted to issues such as the work of women artists in the field of both new media and textiles, for example, women’s artistic education, socially and politically engaged art, and many others.
