The Švicarija: Community, Art and Nature Project
Tivoli – Art with Nature, lecture
Olga Paulič: Tivoli Architecture
Thursday, 18 October, at 6 pm
admission: 2 eur
The beginning of the architectural design of Tivoli Park is represented by the stately architecture of Tivoli Mansion and Leopoldsruhe Mansion (the Cekin Mansion of today). Later, buildings intended for leisure activities started to appear, especially sports and recreational facilities, as well as entertainment facilities. We must also not forget the important cultural buildings on the edge of Tivoli, which are, unfortunately, cut off from the rest of the park because of the railway line.

The Secret Life of Books,
literary panel discussions
Nature, Society, People
Wednesday, 24 October, at 6 pm

Book: James Lovelock, A Rough Ride to the Future
How are nature and society connected? Do people also create and build nature? What are the links between the environment and social change? How does nature affect an individual? The starting point for the discussion is drawn from the ideas of the Švicarija: Community, Art and Nature project.
Guests: Janez Markeš, Mitja Pucer and Ajda Pistotnik, led by Nika Kovač.

Preparations for Improvisation
17. 10.–11. 11. 2018
opening: Wednesday, October 17,
at 6 pm
Matjaž Geder is an art teacher at the Murska Sobota II Elementary School. It is precisely the pedagogical profession that has a profound influence on his creative world, which is constantly in passing from a direct and illustrative visual language to more complex conceptual and symbolically conceived images. He puts the rigid school system, which is based on a way of thinking that is both clichéd and indiscriminate, under critical comparison with the attitude towards the destigmatisation of mental illness, which come surprisingly close in his works. A selection of works created in the recent years is on view, as well as a series of new prints, produced specifically for the exhibition.
