Kinema Ikon

kinema ikon (1970-2005) multimedia atelier at the Art Museum Arad (RO) is the oldest ongoing experimental art group in Romania. The thirty-five years of existence are the result of an optimum equilibrium between the participative, collaborative or group projects, and the individual works. Something between the satisfaction of the collective creation and the satisfaction of the auctorial egotism. Therefore, the stylistic mark of kinema ikon occurs from the interdisciplinary approach of a certain medium (film, video, hypermedia) with the specific tools of the different fields its members activate in (artists, writers, architects, photographers, musicians, programmers, etc.) kinema ikon has undergone three different stages: experimental film (1970-1989), video art (1990-1993), and from 1994 on, exclusively hypermedia works as interactive installations on cd-rom, and as net.art. Both individual works and the group works Opera Prima, Commedia del Multimedia, alteridem.exe and Hymera - are stylistically characterized by experimental, eclectic and playful forms of expression. The resulting works are sensible objects, having an aspect of digital chimera, set in a non-linear fictional discourse, allowing multiple possibilities to the users interactive approach. The group publishes periodically the intermedia magazine, the theoretical dimension of its members interest in the new media.

K6/4 Institute

K6/4 is a not-for-profit cultural institution (zavod) that produces, organises and promotes creativity by the young and daring, especially within the framework of its well-known venues and the teams of art producers at Kapelica Gallery, Klub K4 and Cyberpipe. It operates in the field of live urban culture by stimulating the development of non-commercial, unconventional, avant-garde forms and contents of creative energy. It explores emerging artistic expressions and presents international art trends. K6/4 is also an organiser of the Break Festival. Zavod K6/4 was established in 2000 as a result of the restructuring of the Student Organisation of the University of Ljubljana which is also one of its founders (the other is the Union of Student Clubs of Slovenia). Hosted in the building of the Student Organisation of the University of Ljubljana, it uses its infrastructure for a range of different projects and programmes, most of which were already run by its founder/host in the years before the establishment of Zavod K6/4. The programming philosophy of Zavod K6/4 is based on an ambition to become the central Slovene platform for live, emerging and thought-provoking culture. To this end the Institute is developing numerous programmes and projects within which young creators can efficiently express their creative energy, sharpen it with educational activities and assess it with the help of the audience.

Makrolab

Pixxelpoint

one of the most successful and renowned festivals of new media art in Slovenia and also abroad. Its purpose is firstly, to bring the information technology and new media art closer to the general public, and secondly, to raise awareness about a different potential to use computer among the young. In previous editions the festival had a big media response and over 3000 visitors visited it every year, so this is a challenge for the organizers to further expand it and trespass the boundaries of the gallery space which has become too small for all the projects which are to be carried out. The exhibition of new media art projects, as the central event of the festival will be mounted at City Gallery Nova Gorica but will include also other locations, besides we will also include a symposium on the given topic, as well as workshops run by guest-lecturers. Accompanying activities will include numerous concerts by well-known music performers.
