ETC. is a showcase magazine dedicated to presenting emerging art from the Baltics to the Balkans. The international magazine ETC. is designed to bring together artists, curators, writers and publishers who work in the field of contemporary art. As the magazine is focused on a different social / environmental / political issue in each publication, it is designed to be a platform for diverse voices and opinions from all over Europe, contributing to a wider understanding of a certain issue and the recontextualisation of a border-defined narrative. Today more than ever, there is a need to start a dialogue and begin open conversations. By building a network of young critical minds from completely different backgrounds, the magazine aims to do just that. The magazine’s team consists of Slovenian curators and gallerists from different creative fields: Galerija Fotografija gallery, Ravnikar Gallery Space, DobraVaga and Look Back and Laugh publishing house. The annual magazine presents young emerging artists from Slovenia and abroad through a different relevant topic chosen each time. The aim of the magazine is to create a medium for showcasing current international and local artistic production and contributing to a better connection between Slovenian contemporary art and the wider international art scene, with the goal of establishing a common space in the field of emerging arts in Europe.
ETC. Magazine contains the section Studio Visit, which focuses on a selected artist whose practice is strongly informed by the theme of each magazine. In the second issue, the Slovenian artist Nana Wolke was featured.
The magazine contains sections such as an Interview with an invited artist, curator or theorist who can present their perspective on the chosen topic, a Studio Visit that focuses on a selected artist whose practice is strongly informed by the theme of each magazine, an Opinion section that invites people from different fields to reflect on the chosen theme of the magazine, thus expanding the plurality of opinions; and Artist books, a section dedicated to presenting current production in the field of art publishing. The most comprehensive section, Portfolio Showcase, is presenting selected artworks and projects in detail and is based on the portfolio format, consisting of a visual presentation and short descriptions of individual projects.
