Online exhibition of the scientific database on Slovenian Partisan Theatre

The collection of the AGRFT Centre of Theatre and Film Studies contains diverse material on the partisan theatre activities during World War II (the Slovenian national theatre on the liberated territory, the front theatres, puppet theatre). The core of the collection consists of digitalised and professionally preserved original documents (dramatic texts, costume and set designs, photographs, film recordings and other museum objects). Additional documents from the collection of the Museum of Contemporary History, excerpts from television broadcasts from the RTV Slovenian Archives and Documentation Service, testimonies of the participants and references to titles that deal with similar themes all contribute to the comprehensive presentation. Since 2012, the collection has been publicly displayed in the form of an online exhibition.

The accompanying reference materials in English make this important national archive collection accessible to international users.


Exhibition at the Pavilion of the Republic of Slovenia at the 54th Venice Biennale

Venice, 2011

The aim of the integrated plan to present Heaters for Hot Feelings, the installation by sculptor Mirko Bratuša mounted at the Pavilion of the Republic of Slovenia at the 54th renowned Venice Biennale, was to express cultural identity in a highly recognisable way. The innovative concept of the installation (featuring artificial, high-tech anthropomorphic and biomorphic bodies made of the archaic material clay) allowed a metaphorical presentation of the structure of contemporary society as a network of mutual social, economic and natural co-dependencies.
