DRAUGHT | Nina Slejko Blom & Conny Blom: The Green Drawings

30 November 2017 — 08 February 2018
The Green Drawings is a project that uses the logic of free market capitalism to limit the total amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into the atmosphere. From a cynical perspective, the project uses the same neoliberal logic that controls carbon dioxide emissions, to enable art consumers to buy themselves a guilt-free conscience.

EXHIBITION | Janez Janša®

In 2007, three Slovenian artists joined the conservative Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) and officially changed their names to that of the leader of the party, the Prime Minister of Slovenia at the time, Janez Janša.

DRAUGHT | Peter Rauch: Pavilion

19 September 2017 — 19 November 2017
In Pavilion, Peter Rauch continues to follow the method developed in his series Objects and Community, basing his approach on his understanding of the correlation between an object and its function, or the meaning of an object and the situations and contents produced by or related to it. The constructed object-space is a temporary pavilion with an added auditory dimension, part of the process of event-making.

The title of the seminar should be indicative – it should guide students towards the art placed in public space, intended for the broader public and common use, and created in complex co-authorship.
