Slovenian Press Photography
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.
The project will result in the main exhibition in the Jakopič Gallery featuring variable exhibition sets (differing setups with regard to the theme), exhibitions at partner locations (The Match Gallery, National Museum of Contemporary History, etc.), a publication and other events (presentations, discussions, guided tours for the public, etc.).
The project does not seek to make a chronological presentation or simply list the authors from the field; neither does it wish to establish an encyclopaedic or cataloguing overview. We will approach press photography from the perspective of themes (through the main categories of EVERYDAY, IDENTITY, POWER), and use them to present the evolvement, impulses for the emergence of certain practices, and specific aspects that have marked this genre in Slovenia.
