Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory 2013 Theremidi Orchestra.jpg

Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory was established in 2010 as a successor to the Ljudmila - Ljubljana Digital Media Lab programme of Open Society Institute Slovenia (since 1993) and KUD France Prešeren Arts and Culture Association (since 2001). It strives to connect research practices, technologies, science, art and civil society. It engages in the development and popularisation of open culture, free licences and software, and in new ways of distribution. It detects how the communication transformations affect the society and encourages innovative art practices. From 2011 Ljudmila acts also as a public lead of Creative Commons Slovenia.

Since 2010 Ljudmila operates (editing and developing) the Culture.si portal for international cooperation, in 2013 the Kulturnik.si (metasearch engine and cultural news and events aggregator) was launched. Both portals have been funded by the Slovene Ministry of Culture.



Self-proclaimed as 'the latest spin-off' from the Open Society Institute - Slovenia (1992–2000), the Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory was established by 10 new & all media artists, developers, hackers, programmers, and computer engineers, engaged in the Ljudmila - Ljubljana Digital Media Lab, a programme of KUD France Prešeren Arts and Culture Association.

The founding members of the Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory are Urban Belina, Mitja Doma, Luka Frelih, Tomaž Ižanc, Žiga Kranjec, Igor Križanovskij, Zoran Obradović, Alenka Pirman, Robertina Šebjanič, and Živa Zupan.

Art production

Next to other innovative art projects developed by Ljudmila (acutally a continutation of the Ljudmila - Ljubljana Digital Media Lab programme), the Theremidi Orchestra audiovisual public presentations and open workshops for making DIY instruments and gadgets is internationally quite propulsive practice. An electronic noise ensemble sprang from a theremin and theremidi physical interface workshop at Ljudmila in 2011, in collaboration with Borut Savski, Cirkulacija 2.

Digital agenda

In 2013 Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory was invited by the Ministry of Culture to collaborate with National and University Library and Archives of the Republic of Slovenia and organise a line of discussions related to Digital Agenda in the Field of Culture in order to identify the issues and outline basic standards and recommendations for a common strategy. The working group led by Ljudmila focused on data acessibility, while the other two groups discussed the processes of digitisation and permanent data preservation.
