Slovenia – Guest of Honour Country at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2023


In October 2023, Slovenia is the Guest of Honour of the Frankfurt Book Fair, the world's largest trade fair for books, under the slogan "Honeycomb of Words". Slovenia's exposure at the Frankfurt Book Fair is an opportunity to strengthen the export potential of national book creativity in the field of literature and illustration, meanwhile the effects can be seen in both the cultural and tourism sector.

Slovenian Book Agency is in charge of the project organisation. It has already intensified the translation of Slovenian books, mostly to German. The program has been curated by Miha Kovač and Matthias Göritz.

Overview



Fields of Experimental Music in Slovenia

Luka T. Zagoričnik


Let's take a ride on the term experimental music, which currently mainly defines certain more fringe musical practices, across the expanses of various musical plains, styles and genres. We can apply this (overly) broad term to designate the varied creative simmering in certain segments of the present-day Slovenian music scene. A scene that spans the realms of electro-acoustic music, musique concrète, experimental music in the context of modern classical music, free improvisation, experimental electronic music and sound art as well as their associated present-day trends. This scene is diverse and exceptionally agile. It has developed a strong infrastructure for itself (festivals, concert series, labels, international networks) and exists in the space between self-organising and DIY models and institutional environments.

Set in a modernist building in the centre of the town of Trbovlje, Delavski dom in Trbovlje (DDT) is a local and a regional cultural centre, being the biggest such institution in the Zasavje region. Besides the venue's own diverse and ambitious cultural programme of music, film, theatre, puppetry and visual arts, the centre also runs a new media culture project called Trbovlje, New Media Setting. While DDT's name points to its historical role as a "home" for workers, that is, a meeting place built to provide a venue for a large number of social related activities, today, Delavski dom Trbovlje is home to a number of cultural and educational institutions, including a music school, thus meeting many of the cultural and social needs of the local and wider community.

Osmo/za


Osmo/za is a collaborative space on the 8th floor of the 1960s' Avtotehna skyscraper at Slovenska 54 in the very centre of Ljubljana. It was set up in 2017 by a consortium of three NGO art/cultural producers with a rich and varied history: Ljudmila, which engages in the development and popularisation of open culture, free licences and software, and in new ways of data distribution; Delak Institute, a production house exploring post-gravity art and outlining a path for space culturalisation; and Projekt Atol Institute, whose activities range from art production to scientific research and technological prototype development and production.
