študentje ALUO/students of Academy of Fine Art and Design Ljubljana

Istanbul 3 - 9 September 2007




This year the Real Presence workshop at which selected art academies present the students' works is taking place at the 10th International Istanbul Biennial. Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts and Design has been a part of this project twice before, when the event was presented at the Venice biennial.
In the spirit of the post media condition that this generation of post graduate students is living, we can witness the especially for this occasion developed projects that combine the media of painting, sculpture and video in the context of the integrated artistic media. This works have the status of processes that are researching the notions of image in the real and in virtually generated space. At the exhibition documents as well as artefacts will be put on display in order to induce the communication with the beholder thorough his sight and memories.

The selection has been made by the curators of Real Presence Dobrila Denegri and Biljana Tomić in collaboration with professors from ALUO Ljubljana.
