LJU Cosinus BRX Gallery, Brussels
In September 2006 the LJU Cosinus BRX Gallery was established on the initiative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the former European Commissioner for Science and Research, Janez Potočnik, at the premises of the European Commission in Brussels. The programme is run by the curatorial team of the Kapelica Gallery, Ljubljana. The gallery features works of art based on topical issues in science and technology.
Since the opening project Umbot Noordung by Dunja Zupančič, Miha Turšič and Dragan Živadinov, the programme has featured the projects by Slovene new media artists such as Modux 2004–2006 by BridA, Recycling Strategies by Sašo Sedlaček and Marko Peljhan (Projekt Atol Institute presented the Makrolab). In 2009 the two exhibitions took place at the the LJU Cosinus BRX Gallery: the Brainscore, Brainloopby Janez Janša (the Brainscore part in collaboration with Darij Kreuh) and the Robot Partner by Stefan Doepner.
In November 2009 a documentary exhibition paid a tribute to the 30th anniversary of the Ars Electronica Festival but marked also the conclusion of Mr. Potočnik's mandate (since 2010 he has been working as the European Commissioner for the Environment).
