LETIZIA BATTAGLIA Photography as a Life Choice
24. 5. 2022–2. 10. 2022

Letizia Battaglia was a nonconformist intellectual and photoreporter but also a poetic and political photographer, a woman who was interested in people, art, literature, poetry, life and death. The exhibition Photography as a Life Choice presents 300 photographs, many of which have never been exhibited before, and which reveal the social and political context in which they were shot.

Upcoming
BOJAN RADOVIČ
BOJAN RADOVIČ Replica
25. 10. 2022–15. 1. 2023

Replica presents seven photographic series of Bojan Radovič, which, by merging into a kind of "mid-career" retrospective, undergo new interventions in order to extend the medium of photography to the object. The exhibition will also include new works (2021-2022), based on the theme of Replica, that will relate to the exploration and interrogation of the medium of photography.

Past exhibitions

Meltdown
MeltdownVisualizing Climate Change
18. 1. 2022–1. 5. 2022
The exhibition is a narrative of the importance of glaciers told in a scientific, illustrative and poetic way and each artist has a unique take on the subject. It shows scale from the planetary level to microscopic biological impact, and considers humanitarian suffering and more. Together, the artistic interpretations in MELTDOWN give visitors unique insights into the world’s cryosphere, its fragile ecosystem and our changing global climate.

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.

Vision 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 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
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.
