Activation No. 3:

Video Art Theory, with Slavko Kačunko and Barbara Borčič

Slavko Kačunko, a researcher, curator and writer on video- and media art will present the Video Art Theory (Theorien der Videokunst) anthologies that include texts by 40 key women video art theoreticians written between 1988 and 2018 as well as five current interviews with them. The two anthologies, published in German at Logos Verlag in Berlin, bring important writing by woman critics spanning several generations and represent a priceless source for interdisciplinary studies of video, media and contemporary art, as well as for theoretical research and writing. An introductory speech will be given by Barbara Borčić, head of DIVA Station. The presentation is a collaboration with the Center for Contemporary Arts SCCA-Ljubljana (the DIVA Station archive of video art). With Slavko Kačunko, they are preparing a programme with projections of video works by the video art pioneer Marcel Odenbach, on the same day at 20:00 in Slovenska Kinoteka.
