Happy and merry …

Screening of a new curated video programme from the DIVA Station archive

15 December 2021, 7 pm
Simulaker Gallery, Vrhovčeva ulica 1a, Novo mesto

Citations from the video Santa by Sašo Vrabič, 2001

The programme is the result of a collective selection of videos and films from the DIVA Station archive, which was prepared especially for the Simulaker Gallery at the end of the second year of the corona period by the SCCA-Ljubljana team. In it, we included playful and sarcastic works with a distinct creative imagination, which at times flirts with the absurd. The end of the year is a time of joyful celebration and a time when we proverbially look to the past and imagine the future. We live in a time when reasons for optimism and joy need to be re-invented over and over again, which could be the task of this selection of moving images as well.

Attending the screening is permitted only with a negative PCR or RAT test result or a medical certificate of recovery or vaccination.
