Audiovisual Heritage 2016
Kino-integral: video screenings and discussions
Thursday, October 27, 7pm and 9pm
Slovenian Cinematheque, Miklošičeva 28, Ljubljana
Physical and web archive of video and new media art DIVA Station each year marks the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage – 27th of October, pronounced for the first time in 2005 by UNESCO. Our goal is to emphasize the meaning of archives and audiovisual material as an important part of cultural heritage.
This year we are joined at the celebration by the Slovenian Cinematheque and centre for art and media Argos from Brussels. We dedicate this celebration to a dialogue between newer and older video creations and to connecting DIVA station with the Argos archive from Brussels.
We are inviting you to join us at the screenings on the Thursday of 27th of October from 7 pm at the Slovenian Cinematheque. We will present the new video programme Fresh Perspective (selection by Vesna Bukovec/DIVA station) and host Belgian video art (selection by Sofie Ruysseveldt, Andrea Cinel/Argos). At the screenings the curators will present the selected video works with Q&A at the very end.
