AKC Metelkova City and Project Room SCCA
Visual arts have always examined words, books and reading; moreover, textuality is inscribed in a work of art. The relationship between the letter and the line, the word and the image, the narrative and the visuals is part of many contemporary art projects.
Selected artistic projects and works are each very distinct and different, but all together present a comprehensive process of engaging with words, texts, books, literature and the ritual of reading on the one hand, and the city and urban landscapes on the other. The city and the book are presented in two roles: as a theme connecting all the projects, and as a background to the installation. In addition to the Project Room SCCA, the works are located all over AKC Metelkova City.
