In July at MGLC and the Švicarija Creative Centre
We have taken care to pamper the body and spirit in the city park this year too, given that the Summer in Tivoli traditionally fills the warm and carefree summer evenings with a rich array of cultural events. The Summer in Tivoli programme is woven between Tivoli Mansion and the Švicarija Creative Centre, where you can enjoy music by singer-songwriters and music evenings of electronic and hybrid music, art events and guided tours, as well as a cycle of films, whose leitmotif is the creation of bridges between individuals and the community, as well as community, art and nature.

SONGS III / XII

Songs are performative motion picture and sound compositions that take place in Tivoli Park. They are a bridge between art and nature as artistic intervention, since they open up the perception of what is present in nature, but may appear invisible.
Authors: Mala Kline, in collaboration with Petra Veber.

•Švicarija Creative Centre
On every Thursday of July, concerts of contemporary music take place in the large hall of the Švicarija Creative Centre. These range from electronic to purely hybrid directions, based on recycling as well as virtuosic original
innovation. Presented are those Slovenian musicians and groups that currently belong to the most prominent representatives of contemporary bands of unconventional genre.
The dreamy ambient electronics of a veteran of the local electronic scene and multimedia artist, who skilfully evades genre definitions by combining different expressions.
A sound collage undefined by genre encompassing diverse sources and rich shades, meandering between the expressivity of experimental electronics, drone, noise and glitch.
An atmospheric and melancholic sensibility of nostalgic synth-pop, marked by an entirely synthetic sound and a sleek interplay of synthesizer, guitar, percussion and vocal elements.
A sophisticated minimalist combination of jazz, classical, pop and punkoid elements, integrated into a single whole
by refined arrangements of dialogues mixed with percussion, piano and vocals.
In cooperation with Radio Študent.
Free of charge.

The story tells about travelling actors who move from city to city. The plot narrates the imminent birth of a child and the return of a former lover, opening up old wounds that were thought to be forgotten.
In July, the Sundays in Ljubljana are a little bit different. In the evening we meet up at the forest border of the city, in the legendary Švicarija. First, we make a toast, symbolically reinforcing the group spirit, and then we abandon ourselves to an outdoor film screening. Each film is special, in keeping with the energy of this magical space. Followed by a social digestive. Captivated by art, we focus on satisfying our basic human needs; the need for food, drink, safety, company and love.
Selection: Jan Cvitkovič, film director.
Admission to the David Lynch exhibition: 5 EUR/2.50 EUR. The exhibition STOP AND GO – The Art of Animated GIFs, public guided tour of the exhibition Švicarija: Community, Art and Nature, concerts, performance and films are free of charge.
