The art work on the façade of the Cukrarna Palace was destroyed last night

Last night, vandals destroyed an artwork by Katharina Cibulka, one of the artists currently presented in an exhibition at the City Art Gallery Ljubljana, which was installed on the façade of the Cukrarna Palace. The event dismayed and saddened both us and the artist. We are afraid that the action testifies to a great degree of intolerance in our society, leaves a bitter aftertaste in relation to the new development projects in the capital and shows a hostile attitude to socially critical art.

Jože Barši: Borges, Barši and Oblivion

“From Monday (until 11 April), you can walk through the labyrinth of learning and forgetting created at the City Art Gallery Ljubljana by Jože Barši in cooperation with the curator Barbara Sterle Vurnik, which seemingly also follows the example of the Argentinean writer Jorge Luis Borges, who saw a labyrinth as a library and a library as a gigantic overwhelming labyrinth.”
