Online archive exhibition
The web exhibition Looking Back to Look Forward highlights works and artists from the City of Women archive that focus on collective actions, precarious labour, structural exploitation, solidarity and poetic protest. The works chosen specifically speak to the unique history of the former Yugoslavia region, with a focus on socially engaged art. As well as mapping their own curatorial research, the selection offers further context to curator’s collaboration with artist Alicja Rogalska whose work Kinds of Pressure is presented in Škuc Gallery (2 – 18 October 2019).
Digitisation of miniDV tapes
By the initiative of Nataš Serec, the Web Museum digitised 6 test miniDV tapes from 2000 to 2004 of the Axt und Kelle collective Sommerbaustelle at AKC Metelkova City. We also received the first 20 miniDV cassettes of the Red Dawns Festival.
Archival exhibition with guided tours & online exhibition
For a number of years, City of Women festival and Web Museum by Moderna galerija, Ljubljana collaborates in inventory and archiving of the rich contents from the festival's history. The exhibition Transfer | Circuits curated by Lenka Đorojević and Alja Lobnik have selected 35 archival video materials of artists from the field of performing arts who have played a crucial role in the formation of the performative scene and practices (theatre, dance, performances) in the festival's history as well as in the broader cultural environment. During the festival, from 6 to 8 October 2018, from 3 to 5 p.m. every half-an-hour a guided tour will be conducted by some of the prominent performance art commentators: Pia Brezavšček, Andreja Kopač, Alja Lobnik, Sabina Potočki, Rok Vevar, Jasmina Založnik.
Digitisation of miniDV tapes
Digitalisation of 260 miniDV cassettes from the archive of City of Women Festival between 1998 and 2009, which contain recordings of almost all festival events in this period.
Since its foundation in 1996, the Association for the Promotion of Women in Culture – City of Women – has operated on various levels and performed different activities from artistic production to education, publishing and raising awareness on the necessity of gender equality. One of the most visible activities of the association is the City of Women Festival, which is organised every October at different venues in Ljubljana and which has over the past twenty-two years hosted extraordinary artists from various fields (performing arts, fine art, music, intermedia, etc.).
Digitisation of VHS tapes
In 2017, we digitised 368 VHS cassette tapes from the Moderna galerija Information Centre Reading Room, in particular, those directly related to the collection and exhibition activities of the Modern Gallery, such as video recordings of exhibitions, statements by artists, curators and television articles about its programme.
