European Heritage Days

Uncovering the Sculptural Heritage of Tivoli Park

Sunday, 27 September, at 10.30 am,
in front of Moderna galerija

A new leaflet will be presented, providing visitors with a personal experience of uncovering the sculptural image of Tivoli, along with the many details of the park’s art heritage. The visible, but often overlooked or even invisible sculptures (disappeared or relocated), which, in addition to their aesthetic note, also illustrate the social history of this famous park area.

On the guided stroll, the authors of the leaflet – Gojko Zupan (author of the list and descriptions of the individual sculptures), Tadej Vaukman (author of the photographs) and Yasmín Martín Vodopivec (author of the conceptual draft) – will acquaint you with some interesting facts about the sculptural depictions in Tivoli Park that echo the community, art and nature ethos, which is the foundation of the mission of the cultural heritage programme at Švicarija.

NEW WAVE FRENCH COMICS

Lecture and presentation of the Tinta comics festival programme

Tuesday, 29 September, at 7 pm, MGLC Švicarija
Free of charge

France, the so-called Mecca of European comics, has declared 2020 as the year of comics. The Tinta Ljubljana Comics Festival has also joined in the celebration.

A short lecture by Izar Lunaček will acquaint you with the new wave in French comics – a phenomenon that flooded and shook the Gallic comics scene at the turn of the millennium, giving rise to the key authors of the recent decades: Joann Sfar, Kerascoet, Manu Larcenet, David B, and of course Lewis Trondheim, who will be hosted on Skype this year, in a book, and through a display of original works at MSUM.

The pre-festival gathering will present the highlights of this year’s festival – promising exhibitions, talks and workshops, as well as prominent authors, including the French guests Fanny Dalle Rive and Anne Baraou.

The lecture and presentation will take place in the courtyard in front of Švicarija, and in Švicarija’s Great Hall in the case of rain.

The event is organised following the recommendations of the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ) and visitors are asked to respect them. To participate, please give us advance notice of your attendance by writing to: stripolislovenija@gmail.com

Welcome!
