Šum's Study Seminar in MGLC (2016- )

The main focus of the ŠUM’s Study seminar, organized in collaboration with International Centre of Graphic Arts in Ljubljana (MGLC), focuses on the systemic side of contemporary art and its troubles that often, especially in the local context of art, are dealt with by falling back on the “personal”. More or less tightly knitted proffessional communities, composed of governmental institutions, non-governmental organizations and different public initiatives, and enclosed in narrow… more

Seminar: ANALYISIS OF CONTEMPORARY ART (2015)

(slo)   ASU je praktično teoretski seminar, ki se osredotoča na kritično premišljevanje raznolikih praks in strategij sodobne umetnosti iz lokalnega prostora, ki jih poskušamo premisliti z ozirom na družbene, politične in druge kontekste, v katere se vpenjajo.

Seminar: THEORIES OF CONTEMPORARY ART (2013-2015)

(slo) Seminar TSU pokriva področje kritične teorije sodobne umetnosti. Iz pozicije neposredne sodobnosti poskuša omogočiti refleksijo pogojev, ki določajo delovanje in produkcijo v polju sodobne umetnosti. To počne s prepletanjem in premislekom dveh nivojev: a) lokalne vpetosti (kako nas določa lokalna tradicija, v kolikšni meri in na katere načine so lokalni narativi in konceptualizacije umetnosti relevantni za mlade ustvarjalce, kritike, teoretike in kuratorje, kako specifične produkcijske okoliščine značilne za lokalni kulturno-umetniško… more

Seminar: CURATING CONTEMPORARY ART (2015)

(slo)   Seminar o kuratorskih praksah in njihovih strategijah, ki sestoji iz teoretičnega ali bralnega dela, kjer se udeleženci soočijo z osnovnimi teksti tega področja in poskušajo na njihovi podlagi premisliti lokalno razstavno produkcijo. Seminar je namenjen vsem, ki bi radi podrobneje razumeli sodobno razstavno formo in mehanizme, ki za njo stojijo (naj bodo ti institucionalni ali ne). Kuriranje namreč ostaja zanemarjeno na študijskih programih slovenskih univerz, četudi se je med… more
