On Wednesday, 12 January, at 7 pm, you are kindly invited to the event accompanying the publishing of the photo book SKUP!*
The SKUP photo book is a document of the year-round collaboration between the Kela photographic collective and the Škuc Gallery in the artistic research of production community spaces. The collected photographs and texts testify to the desire to establish new and safer ways of working and living within the artistic context and our everyday life. Photos contributed by Peter Fettich, Lin Gerkman, Hanna Juta Kozar, Urška Preis, Luka Prijatelj, Peter Rauch, Sara Rman and Anja Seničar. The personal confession on the need to work within the community was contributed by the artist Tomaž Furlan. A consideration of an alternative to alternative spaces was added by international curator and philosopher Maximilian Lehner. The IPoP – Institute for Spatial Policies accompanied the publication with a list of points that aim to reveal the importance of space itself in community action.

SKUP, which was on view at Škuc Gallery from 11 November to 9 December, is the first in a series of annual November exhibitions aimed at finding new forms of curatorship and artistic collaboration. They present projects based on invited, year-round collaborations with and between different cultural practitioners. This year, the collaboration took the form of artistic research into the collaborative co-working spaces with the newly founded photography collective Kela, which opened its doors at Tabor last year. With the help of Kela, the communities created interpretive models of their spaces that illustrate their collaborative work in creating communities and carrying out their activities. The exhibition is complemented by an artistic gesture by Maja Bojanić and a publication with thematic texts and documentation of the artistic research.
