SCCA-Ljubljana & Kulturni dom Nova Gorica / City Gallery
Encounters with Contemporary Visual Art

Artist talk with Peter Cerovšek and screening

Tuesday, 19 March 2019, 7pm
Kulturni dom Nova Gorica, Bevkov trg 4


The series of three lectures in frame of Encounters with Contemporary Visual Art are the outcome of collaboration between SCCA-Ljubljana and Kulturni dom Nova Gorica. In 2019 co-workers of SCCA-Ljubljana will prepare one lecture in February (Jasna Jernejšek), March (Peter Cerovšek & Dušan Dovč) and April (Barbara Borčić).

You are kindly welcome to join us on Tuesday, March 19 at the artist talk with film director Peter Cerovšek. The discussion will be moderated by Dušan Dovč.

Peter Cerovšek is actively engaged in the film in various roles: as a producer of the short film festivals, film selector, screenwriter, director, critic and publicist. First part of the event will be dedicated to his latest short films: Fundaments (2018) and Home is Where the House is (2019). In the second part, we will watch his older short films that cross the boundary between a conventional feature film and an experimental short film: We Have All Been Here Since Forever (13 ‘, 2016), Trails (7′, 2015) and The Runner (6 ‘, 2014).
