The World According to Roger Ballen

On the Other Side
19. 1. 2021–19. 6. 2021
"On the Other Side" has taken an interdisciplinary approach, assessing photojournalism through the lenses of media studies, art history and photographic theory. While also giving an overview of the different kinds of photojournalism and the ways they are used in the print and electronic media, this exhibition deliberately focuses on photoreportage, the most accomplished and expressive form of photojournalism.
VIRTUALVision 20/20: Community. Contemporary Indonesian Engaged Photography
23. 10. 2020–31. 12. 2020
After being with us for more than seven months, we have now said goodbye to the incredible exhibition, which was realised in extraordinary times. The exhibition of contemporary Indonesian engaged photography, which inspired us, moved us deeply, and led us to look beyond the horizon of stereotypes is still virtually accessible – through the photographs and virtual tours.
Vision 20/20: Community. Contemporary Indonesian Engaged Photography
17. 3. 2020–31. 10. 2020
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.
Jaka Babnik: Pygmalion
22. 10. 2019–26. 1. 2020
Each of the objects or their photographic images exhibited has a very specific symbolic value that can only be recognised within the context it has been taken from: Tacitus’ Germania, an ex-voto figure from the Church of the Mother of God at Mount Brinjeva gora, Tina Maze’s Olympic gold medal, a silicone breast implant, a voting box from the 1990 referendum or a tiny fragment of the Berlin Wall, to mention just a few.
Lucien Hervé: Geometry of Light
11. 6. 2019–29. 9. 2019
This exhibition of one of the great photographers of the 20th century was originally presented at the Jeu de Paume, Paris’ foremost photographic gallery. In the spirit of Lucien Hervé’s reflection that “at best, one can hope to beget a vague idea of the whole by defining an intimate detail”, the Jakopič Gallery exhibition aims to contribute towards the appreciation of the rich legacy collectively created by authors working in this medium both locally and internationally.
