The artist’s book as a distinct medium in Slovenia is the subject of this exhibition organised by Tadej Pogacar / The P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Institute. The artist’s book emerged in Slovenia with the OHO Group, in the context of the neo-avant-garde art scene of the 1960s, in an atmosphere permeated with social and political activism. It developed in the 1970s with the production of the Westeast anthologies. Compiled by Franci Zagoricnik, they included around 700 original works by artists from Eastern and Western Europe and Asia. The 1980s and early 1990s were marked by the production of fanzines from the alternative scene, which was particularly active in the larger cities of Ljubljana and Maribor. In the past decade, artist’s books in Slovenia have been characterized by the hybridization of different genres, original neo-conceptual approaches, and the use of electronic formats, such as CD ROMs and digital archives.

The exhibition and lecture are part of the Photobook Module, facilitated by Paula Roush in the Digital Photography programme at London South Bank University. The exhibition has received the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia and the Municipality of Ljubljana, Department of Culture.
