DIVA Station is a research and study archive of video and new media art developed and maintained by the SCCA-Ljubljana Centre for Contemporary Arts. It presents artworks by more than hundred artists based in Slovenia who have contributed their works to the care of the archive while maintaining the licence for these works. Apart from analogue and digital archive accessible for viewing at the SCCA Project Room, DIVA (Digital Video Archive) it is now also available online. DIVA Station constantly adds newly acquired works to the archive and promotes an overall understanding of artistic oeuvre by organising discussions, screenings and presentations.



The DIVA platform

DIVA Station serves as an umbrella project and presentation platform for programmes focusing on video art, and is based on the documentation project Videodokument. It includes also the artists' Internet Portfolio, Artservis' Collection, and Videospotting as well as seminars, exhibitions and discussions with the aim to inform professionals and wider public about the theoretical, practical and artistic aspects of the audiovisual archives of contemporary art.

The DIVA Station premièred at Škuc Gallery in June 2009 and was officially launched in October 2011 at Kapelica Gallery.

Videospotting programme

Videospotting offers a series of surveys or thematic programmes of Slovene video art curated by SCCA-Ljubljana's curators (Barbara Borčić, Ida Hiršenfelder, etc.) and invited experts (Nerina Kocjančič, Igor Španjol to name just two). Since 1994 Videospotting is annually presented up to 6 times. Presentations are featured at various international and national showcases mostly in a form of screenings and exhibitions accompanied by lectures.

Recent screenings of Videospotting took place abroad at the festival Ars Electronica in Linz (Austria, 2009), the Lux Centre in London (UK, 2011), the Arsenal Gallery in Poznan (Poland, 2010), the Townhouse Gallery in Cairo (Egypt, 2008 and 2010) and at the Transmediale festival in Berlin (Germany, 2008).

GAMA (Gateway to Archives of Media Art)

The DIVA Station was also a partner archive of GAMA (Gateway to Archives of Media Art), an international Internet platform launched in 2007, which brought together eight European video and media archives to make them more visible and easily accessible in order to increase awareness and mediation of media art.
