KIBLA Portal

updated 2 days ago

KIBLA Portal is a multifunctional exhibition and event venue for contemporary artistic practices, stationed in the city of Maribor. It presents a variety of media, from computer and intermedia arts to paintings and sculptures, and is sometimes also used for electronic music performances, conferences and the like. It operates as a dislocated premise of the KIBLA Multimedia Centre (MMC KIBLA), an institution that works at the confluences of research, culture, technology, arts, and sciences.

Though MMC KIBLA also operates the similar gallery venue KiBela Art Space, the KIBLA Portal is very special in its basic – spatial – feature. It is very big. It covers a space of about 2000 square meters and as such both enables and demands specific types of projects.

The project has been supported by the Ministry of Culture and the Municipality of Divača, while the renovation works on the Škratelj's homestead were supported by the donation of Norway through the Norwegian Financial Mechanism. The museum incorporates 325 m² of the exhibition space and the 300 m² large auditorium for the open air screenings and the cinema hall with 60 seats.

MetalDays

updated 6 days ago

Though the first edition of the international metal music festival MetalDays was held in 2013, the festival actually goes back to 2004, as it is in all but name a continuation of the legendary Metalcamp. As such, for some time now, it is one of the central metal events in this part of Europe, attracting a massive international audience of thousands of fans from Scandinavia, Germany, Austria, the Mediterranean countries, and Slovenia. This is, among other things, due to the carefully crafted conjunction of a musical experience with a tourist one.

The festival takes place in the beautiful surroundings of the Alps and is held at the Sotočje peninsula at Tolmin. Its programme represents a wide variety of genres and sub-genres of metal with the addition of hardcore influenced styles in the 7-day gathering of bands performing on a couple of stages.

Viba Film Studio

Viba Film Studio.jpg

Viba Film Studio as we know it today was established in 1994 by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia as a state institution which operates as the national technical film foundation. In a way one could say that its history is longer (at least from 1956 when the production company Viba Film was established) as it existed already before but under (more or less) different names and under different organisational structures. Today Viba Film Studio is involved in the production and/or post-production of the majority of Slovene films included in the National Film Programme (co-funded by the Slovenian Film Centre), but it also operates on a strictly commercial basis (international co-productions, commercials, etc.). Viba also cooperates in student productions at the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television (AGRFT), both during the shooting of films and the post-production.

Kobarid Museum

Kobarid Museum.jpg

Kobarid Museum is devoted to the Soča (Isonzo) Front of the First World War. The valley of Soča River saw no fewer than 12 battles between the Italians and the forces of the Austro-Hungarian empire between May 1915 and November 1917, making it a battlefield of extraordinary proportions, even for World War I. The exact death toll has never been established. While talk used to be of over a million, historians now say that at least 300,000 soldiers died in three years of fighting.

Established in 1990 in the Slovene town Kobarid (called Karfreit when part of the Austro-Hungarian empire, and Caporetto under the Italians) near the Italian border, the Kobarid Museum won the prestigious Council of Europe Museum Prize in 1993. The permanent exhibition is unique in that it does not favour any side in the war, there are just men fighting, losing lives and being mutilated under heavy fire or harsh weather conditions in a war where industry and money make a difference, not man power, courage or effort. It is a museum about war that leaves an impression of deep pacifism.
