Vision 20/20 is part of a broader vision of Jakopič Gallery, which is to learn and give opportunities for learning. Learning about others, about them, but through them and through photography – about ourselves. We initiated it with last year’s exhibition of Iraqi photographers, which also emphasised different ways of seeing: Over My Eyes exposed a different Iraq than the one defined by war and war only.
Jakopič Gallery is presentig MELTDOWN, an exhibition created by the climate change charity Project Pressure. Since 2008 Project Pressure has been commissioning world-renowned artists to conduct expeditions around the world, the result of which is this exhibition, premiered last summer in the Museum of Natural History in Vienna.
In cooperation with the Social Communication Research Centre of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Membrana Institute for Research, Education and Cultural Activities, and the National Museum of Contemporary History the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana is developing a theoretical and exhibition project on Slovenian press photography.
