The birth of Birth as Criterion – on the genesis and protocols of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts

Discussion

Thursday, 6 July, at 18.30, Škuc Gallery

Discussion on the basic ideas, rhizomatic structure, process of work, development of the exhibition, as well as all the dilemmas and decisions taken during the organisation of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts at the exhibition THIS IS NOT A NAME at the ŠKUC Gallery. The exhibition offers a condensed insight into the making of this year’s experimental format of the Biennial and, along with the presented works, attempts to awaken thinking and pondering, doubts and concerns, and to provide a different view of the Biennial’s main exhibition and its emergence in the light of the central endeavour of this year’s Biennial edition: searching for new ways of conceiving exhibitions. The debate will involve Miklavž Komelj, Yasmín Martín Vodopivec, Vladimir Vidmar and Nevenka Šivavec, members of the Biennial collective , and the curators of the exhibition THIS IS NOT A NAME. The discussion will be moderated by Miha Colner.

The exhibition is a coproduction between Škuc Gallery and the International Centre for Graphic Arts, and part of the 32rd Biennial of Graphic Arts.

The programme of Škuc Gallery is supported by Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia and Cultural Department of the City of Ljubljana.
