Aksioma – Institute for Contemporary Art, Ljubljana is a non-profit cultural institution based in Ljubljana (Slovenia) interested in projects that utilise new technologies in order to investigate and discuss the structures of modern society.
Over the last ten years Aksioma has grown from producing individual projects to organising and producing an annual programme of events inside and outside gallery spaces, at home and abroad. It also runs Aksioma | Project Space with a focus on artistic practices that hack the role of mass media in society and interpret its narratives through a subversive, critical and ironic manner.
Working as a non-profit organisation in the field of culture since 1999, Drugo More identifies and explores topics of social relevance and general interest to the community we all live in (locally, regionally and internationally). Their artistic programme is interdisciplinary, connecting with discourses in science and cultural theory, because they believe that art is important as a cognitive tool.
This contemporary arts organisation opened a new exhibition space in spring 2014, which will be focusing on the presentation of new/post media art.
Abandon Normal Devices
AND is a catalyst for new approaches to art-making and digital invention, commissioning ground breaking projects which challenge the definitions of art and moving image.
Inviting artists to hijack the imagination, by developing projects which abandon traditional settings and partnerships. AND brings together an eclectic mix of academics, filmmakers, scientists and anarchists to actively push the boundaries of audience experience and arts production.
With a distinct emphasis on creative enquiry and provocations, AND creates a space where artists can reflect on and play with the impact of new technologies.
The AND portfolio consists of film happenings, exhibitions, performances, online projects, residencies, public realm interventions and a roaming biennial festival.
Link Art Center
The Link Center for the Arts of the Information Age (Link Art Center) is a multi-functional centre promoting artistic research with new technologies and critical reflections on the core issues of the information age. Created in 2011 by former art gallery owner Fabio Paris, freelance curator Domenico Quaranta and business consultant Lucio Chiappa, The Link Art Center does not exist in a space, but in its activities in Italy and beyond. Its programme often manifests through group exhibitions, publications, online projects, workshops and lectures.
This year d-i-n-a’s flagship festival, The Influencers, will celebrate its 10th anniversary. The festival is an atypical platform for unconventional art, radical entertainment and gurellia communication curated by Bani Brusadin, Franco Mattes and Eva Mattes.
Since 2004 the Influencers has grown to become an important cultural event in Barcelona, Catalonia and internationally; annually inviting audiences to experience experiments, rebellious projects, inventions and adventures with everyday technology and the collective imagination.
