The "Sodobna umetnost" channel or Contemporary Art Web Channel documents contemporary visual arts via the format of short video presentations. Its founder and author is Aljoša Abrahamsberg, a producer, videographer, a man with the camera, owner of antenna and art historian interested in contemporary art. Contemporary Art presentations are produced by the RX-TX Institute for Research, Creativity, Production, Sports, Mediation and Publishing, based in Solkan near Nova Gorica.


Contents

A series of video presentations Contemporary Art is a reflection of the developments in the field of contemporary visual art in Slovenia that are broadcasted on the Contemporary Art Web Channel. Contemporary Art Web Channel offers a variety of recordings of exhibitions, art projects and art installations, for example, Sanela Jahić's The Labour of Making Labour Disappear, Zoran Srdić Janežič's Flaneuron, Jure Zadnikar's Under Construction, Vadim Fiškin's A little big bang, Saša Spačal's Earthlink, Tanja Vujinović's Elixir Distillers, etc.

Videos present an individual art project, accompanied by an interview with the artist. They last about 6 to 17 minutes, their author is Abrahamsberg. The policy of the Contemporary Art Web Channel is to present the latest trends in art, especially artistic events at the crossroads of art, technology and bioscience: for example, from the thematization of the current wave of ubiquitous automation and the ever-accelerating development and use of technologies which radically alter and reorganize all forms of work (as in Jahić's work), to the current use of neuron cells in the science of living systems (as in Srdić Janežič's work) or the construction of a technological "other" (as in Vujinović's work). The presented art works and projects are held in various art locations, such as the Equrna Gallery in Ljubljana, Aksioma Project Space, Kapelica Gallery, Vžigalica Gallery etc.


Background

Aljoša Abrahamsberg also works as an artist and art producer: in 1983, he was a co-founder of the musical group Musical Experiment of Film. Together with Marko Peljhan, a conceptual artist and professor at the University of California in Santa Barbara in USA and several other people from the border town of Nova Gorica he was also the co-founder of the CRMK Centre for Youth Culture in Šempeter near Nova Gorica during the last years of socialism. Since 1992, he has collaborated with Peljhan and his Projekt Atol Institute; one of their projects being the utilization of a 48Nm range radar array for artistic and psycho artistic work. Abrahamsberg's hunt for signals from the territories of the electro-magnetic spectrum was presented in many art works and art collaborations, also in, for example, a sound installation The game's begun in secret, in 2015, in Sonoretum of Kapelica Gallery in Ljubljana, which consisted of archive recordings of his eavesdropping to signals which he intercepted using various different radio devices.
