The first volume of the tenth edition of the ŠUM magazine focuses on the context of establishing the notion of contemporary art in Slovenia. In doing so, it does not have the tendency to answer the question of what is contemporary art, but chronologically places itself at the rearmost points of – in the words of Igor Zabel – “the gradual realization of the idea of contemporary art.” “The ambition of the issue is therefore relatively modest: to offer some points of entry, partial views on the context of establishing a concept of contemporary art, especially in the local space. On the one hand it looks back at the period of the so-called break from the 1980s to the 90th and on the other reaches toward the period of the formation of the concept of post-contemporary.
