Folio Magazine, No. 1/4, 2011
Folio Magazine was established by KIBLA Multimedia Centre in 2009 as a "guide to intermedia art, culture and the joy of life". This bilingual quarterly in newspaper format brings mostly interviews with Slovene and international artists and cultural operators.
The content in the first four issues derives from the international activities of the multimedia centre as well as its KiBela Art Space programme, however, Folio strives to become the central newspaper in the upcoming European Capital of Culture 2012 (Maribor and partner cities) activities. Folio is a free magazine available in several art spaces throughout Slovenia or by request (for the cost of shipping).
The magazine, printed on a newspaper paper, offers a first-hand insight into the contemporary art scene in Slovenia and features artists of younger generation, presents current new media festivals, and reflects on the issues of today's cultural industry (the presence of the Slovene artists on the art fairs and art market, for example). The numerous bilingual interviews include Edward Clug, Kristian Kožul, Huiqin Wang, Luka Frelih, Robertina Šebjanič, Marko Batista, Matej Košir, Conny Blom, Quentin Drouet, Goran Tomčić, and cultural operators such as Maja Arzenšek from Kino Udarnik Maribor. The writers are Slovene art critics and curators of younger generation as well as the members of the KIBLA Multimedia Centre team.
