From the Archives of the DIVA Station: Online and Common
Guest: Anja Medved
We watched a film by Anja Medved and Patricija Maličev, in which they discuss the puzzles of humanity with the creator, scientist, and philosopher. The debate is on environmental issues from philosophical perspectives. Are we at odds with nature due to rapid technological developments? The screening was followed by a conversation between the selector Irena Borić, directress Anja Medved and associate of the DIVA Station Vesna Bukovec.

In cooperation with the DIVA Station, a digital video archive from Ljubljana, we are preparing a series of online video projections on the computer and online art, perception of physicality in a virtual environment, and transmitted feelings. The purpose of online projections is to get acquainted with works from the digital archive, get to know individual authors, and create a space for joint reflection, discussion, and knowledge exchange. Each event will be based on a selection of (including older) works from the archives of the DIVA Station and a conversation with the authors. Deriving from the events’ online context, the focus will be on works that can start a discussion on the new reality of art perception through the digital experience. The conversations will be moderated by Irena Borić and Vesna Bukovec.
The online broadcast of all meetings will be available at https://kiblix.org/streaming.
The DIVA station is an online and physical archive that SCCA-Ljubljana has been developing since 2005 to research, document, archive, and present art film, video, and new media art. It is based on the collection of video materials within the extended concept of the national context and includes artists working in Slovenia and/or internationally.
