THE MUSEUM SUMMER NIGHT

The Museum Summer Night, held annually on every third Saturday in June, is the largest national promotional campaign by the museums and galleries of Slovenia, joined by a number of other institutions and organizations that carry out programmes in the field of cultural heritage, art, culture and history. The initiator of the campaign, Lili Šturm, senior curator at the International Centre of Graphic Arts, first coordinated the project in 2003, conceiving it as a relaxed way to spend one’s time in meeting the institutions and their subject areas. This well attended event that today brings together some 40 cities, 80 institutions and 200 individual events was coordinated by the International Centre of Graphic Arts under the auspices of the Union of the Museums of Slovenia up till 2012.

Lili Šturm received the Valvasor Honorary Recognition in 2013 for establishing and managing the Museum Summer Nights.

Announcing the 34th Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts: Iskra Delta

18. 6.–17. 10. 2021

Iskra Delta, a technology conglomerate, has been summoned from the future to present its covert production at the 34th Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts.

In the more than sixty years of its existence, the Ljubljana Biennale that was founded in 1955 in the midst of the Cold War, has tirelessly responded to the ever-changing sociopolitical context while rearticulating its own identity and strategies. From the very beginning, it sought to transcend geopolitical polarities, reflecting Yugoslavia's determination to choose its own path.

The Biennale continues to draw from its history and context, taking a specific local case of technological development and its unrealised potentials as the impetus for its 34th edition. Against a backdrop of social and environmental unrest, deep in the pandemic that has fixed our bodies in place and our eyes on screens, the story of Iskra Delta and the spectres of the "lost futures" that haunt it provide a spark for imagining and constructing possible alternative presents.

Curators:
Tjaša Pogačar, Muanis Sinanović, Nevenka Šivavec
