In 2011 the Aksioma Institute for Contemporary Art opened up a new venue in Ljubljana dedicated to exhibitions and presentations of either its own art productions or those of various internationally acclaimed new media art projects.

Its programme focuses on artistic explorations of the social and political aspects of the 'technological unconscious' and strives to deconstruct the 'normality' of the media and other ubiquitous communication tools. The size of the exhibition space is cca 40 m2.


The gallery can function as a white cube or can be used in a different ways, such as for film screening (Michael Madsen's Into Eternity in January 2012). In 2011 Frederik De Wilde used it as a sort of laboratory for his Hostage, an artwork consisting of a nano-engineered material that absorbs all visible light. Julian Oliver and Danja Vasiliev presented Newstweek, a device for manipulating news on major news portals in the country. For the occasion the gallery was turned into a press center where visitors could edit news (April 2012).

The exhibitions in the Project Space are often accompanied by a bilingual brochure with original text or interview, written especially for the occasion. The Paolo Cirio's Realityflowhacked, for example, was introduced by Bruce Sterling's Sculpting the Flow of Reality.
